  • I am sad to read of Joe’s passing. He was a sweet, kind and enormously helpful person. He certainly extricated me from some tight spots in the theatre! May he rest in well-earned peace. Condolences to the family and especially to JoAnn who worked so well with me and beside him. God Bless you all.
