I am saddened by the passing of Joe. It was always a pleasure to see him when he would come into Jack Spencer's State Farm Ins. Office. He was such an interesting person to talk to. My deepest sympathy to Chan and the family. Joe will be missed.

I remember when Joe and Chan came to America and the good times we shared getting them settled and the times we got together and share a good time around a bonfire in our yard and had a picnic just visiting and watching our children play together
