    Nancy, I am so sorry to hear about Joe’s passing. My heart goes out to you. I think of you often and miss seeing you around Meditech. I used to sit near Joe on the second floor of Canton and thought he was a great guy. When I learned you two were a couple, I was thrilled for both of you. I am so sorry you are suffering this loss.
