At Joe's funeral a remembrance card was given to all the friends and family. On the card is a picture of Joe and the poem below penned by WWII pilot John Gillespie Magee, Jr.  Out of curiosity I researched the history and meaning of the poem. I encourage everyone to go to the link below the poem and gain insight into Joe and his family. It is a remarkable story.

High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds,—and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark nor ever eagle flew—
And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Mr. Eeeps you might remember I bought the album Billion Dollar Babies by Alice Cooper when we lived together in Albuquerque, well I met and spoke with Alice for quite a while when our eldest son graduated from Michigan State at the Detroit Intl Airport. He is quite a cool dude, very down to earth and was a 4 handicapper back in the day.

13 grandchildren is quite a bunch considering you were shooting blanks! All the Best!

I also am saddened by Joe's passing. Spent many hours with him on the football field and at at wrestling practice. Always the joker, I had to go back and look at what he wrote in my 66- 67 Tiger Tales on the Varsity football page......"Even though I didn't play much we had fun listening to Charlie's (Fatchett) jokes even when they were not funny!."  And he signed it " Joe A 1 Mafia". He did well for someone who did not grow up with the American sports scene.

My heartfelt condolences go out to John and Maria.
