I adored Joe. He was one of the most hungry for life people I have ever met. He changed my life by showing me how one could be such a voracious learner of books, people, concepts and spirituality. He always wanted more, and it was truly inspiring. I am turning my sadness at his departure into a deep joyful satisfaction that I even got to know him. Thank you for letting me learn from you, Joe. XO
