Joel is constantly being remembered. I am back at Burndy in Lincoln, NH, where we worked, laughed, and shared our thoughts for many years in the 1990’s. I “see” him here with every walk I take in the building, and former friends & co-workers of his ask about him every few months when they return or call. They all loved Joel and he is always remembered fondly; always with a smile. Thanks Joel, our friend.

My condolances to Mel & Jared on your loss. I can never hope to alleviate your pain, but know that Joel is missed by the many people whose lives he touched and made better. We are all better for knowing him.
Joel was one of the best friends I ever had, a wonderful boss, a knowledgable colleague, a confidant, and like a brother. I am sorry that he had to be taken from us this way.
God bless you, Joel!

I will miss a great neighbor who was always willing to lend advise or a hand. He was full of knowledge. Neighbor by accident, friend by choice. He certainly loved his Boston sports, and we had many conversations about Boston vs St. Louis. He got the better of us again this past year. He will be missed. My condolences to Mel, Jared, and Karen.
