Oh, we'll miss you, Joe. *I'll* miss you, thought we haven't spoken for almost a year.
I met Joe thru his Red Wheelbarrow BBS in '94.
He was so happy for me when I got married.
I was so happy for him when he met Susan (and so glad you got married last year!).
Joe was such a friend and 'puter mentor.
In '96, when I learned Joe had a scanner, and I was really learning lots about 'puter graphics, I asked him to scan a few photos. Then a few more. Then a few more. Next thing I knew, Joe brought me the scanner, plunked it down and gave it to me! :) Such a generous man. Such a love.
I'll always love you, Joe.
