Dear Sandy and Family,

I was saddened and surprised to hear the news of Joe's passing. Attending his karate classes and lessons learned from them have stayed with me all of these years. He was quite an inspiration to alot of young people in our community, including me. His quick wit, sense of humor and compassion for his students and friends will not be forgotten. Know that you and your family our in my thoughts and prayers this day. Rest well, Joe........
