I am sorry to have lost a good friend. I met Joe thru the Model Railroad Club in Quincy. He always had a smile on his face. Was always very humble. Always enjoyed a good joke...even if the joke was on him. He will be missed; but now he can go be with his beloved Judy. She was the center of his universe, and he always said so.
