Joe was one of my favorite managers at HRC. He always had a smile on his face, he loved having fun with his work family, he had a service heart and he embraced the mottos - Take Time to be Kind; Love All Serve All; Save the Planet & All is One. We are all blessed to have had him in our lives and to have known him. He will be missed.
Until we meet again, my friend.
Tami
