Hey buddy, I have never forgotten that I owe you a record player! You remember the one you left with me the last time I saw you? We used it up playing our only record, "The Tracks of My Tears" by Smokey Robinson. Through the years since, every time I have heard that song I have thought of you, that record player and felt a little guilty. It also reminds me of all the years in between that you didn't have. For what it's worth, Joe, I want you to know that I am damn proud to have known and served with you and Jimmie Sanchez. You both will forever be in my memories. If I ever get the guts I will come and see your names in person. God bless you both!
