    Joe, you were a part of my youth that still brings a smile to my face. From walking three besties Chris, Michelle, and me to Twin Bays to watch a movie and always making sure we got there and back safely. The walk was long but the time we laughed, goofed off, sharing secrets and dreams ( yours being a chef) will always be in my heart and memories.
