I'm sad to learn of Joe's passing.  I always walked around the Metropolitan Lounge in Chicago

looking for Joe, and many times he was there!!  A wonderful person.  Thanks Alan for letting

us know.

Sorry for taking to long to respond. I had a privilege to meet him during an AU Gathering. He was a really nice fella. Thanks Alan to spread the news.
