I was sad to find the article of Joe’s passing, especially 3 years after the fact. Joe was a good friend to my ex husband when they were teenagers, best man at our wedding and after my marriage ended my friend and lover. Joe and I lost touch after he moved to Thailand, but he always held a special place in my heart. I was happy to read of his life, it seemed that the years had not changed him. Joe could light up a room, and everyone was always glad to see him. I’m sorry to have lost touch, and I hope his suffering was brief.
