To me he was always Uncle Joe, even though we were not directly related. He was kind, a bit mischevious to us kids, and always up for fun. And he was generous throughout his life. I think fondly of Hartington, mainly becasue of the many wonderful people, none more so than Joe, who made it a special place. If there is a soda fountain in heaven, Joe and Alex will be there, serving vanilla cokes and chatting with three very special girls on those stools.
