    Dear Lydia and David,
    Joe was one of my favorite friends in high school. I spent years trying to find him, calling every Houlette I could find on the internet. When we reconnected it was if no time had gone by at all in San Jose, laughing at the antics we pulled in high school. He was a true gentleman and always ready for an adventure. I will miss him dearly.
