Barbara, Joe will be missed greatly. I went to the garage on Main St. many times when I first move to Thompson years ago. Then worked side by side with him when I drove bus and then when I was a coordinator of the buses. He was alway kind, thoughtful and as I have already said a great friend. Love to you and the family.
