    We never met, but my mother (Kathy Peebles) went to school with you. Every Memorial Day we decorate the graves of our family in San Jacinto. She always sets flowers aside for you.

    Joe,
    Hardly a day goes by that I don't think of all you guys. We walked in the same squad together. I'll never forget your smile and great positive attitude even in the worst conditions. We call you surfer Joe. You always said "A day at the beach could cure anything". I love you and miss you. You were a dear friend. Love you brother and you are never forgotten.
