I will miss our weekly "Thirsty Thursday" meetings to solve the World's problems.
Venue of classic IPA's, or Sambuca with coffee 3 beans [when times were rough].

Now we must count on you again to help the world as you helped all of us. You surely will have a better view [hopefully] and I'm certain you'll have some influence where ever you wind up.
If worst comes to worst, buddy, you'll have plenty of help putting out the really really Big Fire with "Big Smoke" Don Lippke backing you up.

May God bless your family, his firefighting family and all his friends and relatives. We were all blessed to have shared Joe in our lives!
