Not sure what to say?

Hi McBride Family I just heard about Joe I was so sorry to find out about his death. I knew Joe from child Guidance around 1983 and yes I agree he definitely touch my heart and soul My dad died and I did know what to do but Joe help me come out of that dark place I was in. also on a little funny note He said when he taught at Rutgers University He would use me as an example because I was a long time client with Child Guidance but if it was not for Joe I would not be here now so I will miss...

You taught me how to feel the butterflies over and over again

Joe ... I had to come to your guest book. You have been on my mind a lot lately. I really miss our talks and our friendship. You knew David so well ... You will never be forgotten. Steve and I talk about you all the time. I know that you have met David and I am sure that the two of you are all about the sports ... Miss You Joe So Much ...

Joe came into my family's life professionally in 1985, referred by Dr. Robert Kaye. His kindness and wisdom helped us during a difficult time. I just recently heard of his passing and was shocked. I sincerely hope his family is well and have been able to find comfort. He was a remarkable therapist. I can only assume he was a remarkable husband, father and human being. Joe will be missed!

Somehow, we have just heard about Joe’s death. We met Joe when our daughter was diagnosed as a Type I diabetic at CHOP, at the age of 13 months, 35 years ago. Lester Baker (our endocrinologist) introduced us, and Joe became an intricate part of our family and our ability to cope with the horrible insult to our daughter, her health and our family. For much of her youth we saw Joe periodically to discuss how to cope and how to deal with each other civilly while burning up inside at what she...

I am sitting here in shock and in deep sadness. I just read an article in the local paper on the Ride for Silence this Wednesday and learned of Joe's tragic passing. Joe and I met as classmates at Rutgers Graduate School of Social Work in the late 70s and immediately became friends. We both shared the joy of biking, and he would often use my house as a rest stop during his long weekend rides. We lost touch through the years, but I continued to be very fond of him. He was one of those people...

I am so shocked and saddened by this news. I worked with Joe for a few years while at CHOP and suprisingly last saw him at a Leonard Cohen concert last year some time. His energy was catchy and always lifted the spirits of those he interacted with. My heart goes out to Joe's family and friends for this tragic loss.

I'm so shocked. Joe was such an inspiration to me when I was growing up b/c I too am Diabetic. He really helped me deal with my chronic illness and made me realize that I was not alone. I was in the process of trying to contact him today but instead I came across this sad news. Thank you Joe for all your help in the Diabetic community and in general. I wish you didn't have to go.

I worked with Joe at CHOP for many years. He was an amazing therapist and a great guy. I also admired his academic work and used some of his articles in my doctoral dissertation work. The world has lost a great man.

Someone just sent it to me and I am in shock. I knew Joe when I came to work at Philadelphia Child Guidance Center and I worked in the Medical Records Department. Very down to earth person with a tremendous spirit. I would run into him on the campus a Penn and he was still the approachable person at PCGC.

My heartfelt prayer to his family.
