Joe did a great job at the Cambridge Hospital, all of us in the lab really appreciated him. I will miss talking football with him, his knowledge of the game was awesome. Rest easy buddy.

march of 2014 Joe and I went to New York City , he mentioned he was going and I pretty much invited myself , we took the train got to the hotel , course there was only one room because he expected to go alone , well theres usually couches he said , ok I say . well he walks in the room first and could hardly speak and turned as white as a sheet when there was only one bed and no couch lol , and this bed let me tell u was probably a double if that . Well we made the best of it because we were friends . I had a wonderful time , Joe showed me around New York we saw a show and its a great memory I will have forever . Rest in peace my friend I love You , Lisa
