It was with shock and grief when we heard of Joe's passing. Completely unexpected. We were initially at a loss for words because we and Joe go back a long time, having worked together since the mid 60s and serving together in the NYC National Guard. Many long, long and sometimes enduring hours spent together at work. Joe (and Linda) was more than good people. Our deepest condolences and sympathies to Joe's family. May Joe rest in peace.
