  1. Truly a sad loss. I have corresponded with Joe many times in recent years, although I never had the good fortune to meet him. He took the initiative quite a few times to respond to queries I posted, generously offering his time and information. He was passionate about family history. He blessed my life immensely. I hope I enriched his half as much.
