    I believe Joe touched alot of people in his time, many here, if anyone can get a word to Shortstuff, let her know too, seems the right thing to do.

    Oh my god! I cant belive this I saw him post all the time he was truly one of the best guys here, I dont even know what to say, I had no idea he was sick you could not even tell always positive and upbeat, may he rest in peace at least he's in a better place, I hope his family is alright which of course they are not at the moment, but they will find healing knowing that he's in eternal peace.

    Although i hav enot been a member of the forums as long as some, fortunatly i did have enough time to get to know him through this forum. I had no idea that something was plaguing him. I am truly sad to the bottom of my heart. And bless his family, b/c i know i death of someone close is not easy to cope with. Does any one know how old he was? He gave alot to the DH community so maybe a small memorial page can be set up on this site to honor him and(i hope not) others in the future that have given alot to this site? There are no words that can express my emotions after reading the news on the fromt page. :tears: God bless.

    The fact that he and I weren't on the best of terms lately leaves an aching throb in the pit of my heart. Wish we could have cleared the air so he would know that I did not hate him. I really liked him. Funny guy to really talk to. He will be missed.

    Oh my god, I had no idea he was having problems. He certainly stayed upbeat, because I never would have guessed. Definitely a shock, and very sad news to hear. :(

    He told me that he got hit with Nerve Gas (Sarin) during the Gulf War. The first one that is.

    I don't know him really, but have seen him on the forums and his name on various articles on the site. Always sad to hear news like this - my condolances to his family and friends.
