51 Kevin Frye 7 months ago Wow- a day I honestly never saw coming... Joe, from the first time I met you (in writing, actually) it never dawned on me that the day might come when you will not be there to deal the odd helping hand when needed.Your contribution to the overall brand is truthfully immeasurable, and while I have no doubts that the next "Joe" will be a wonderful man (or woman, for that matter), you certainly are leaving some very large boots to fill. On the other hand, if there is anyone out there who thinks you have not earned some serious time off, they need to give their head a shake. It seems as though for the past decade or so, you've always been available whenever someone called. You've earned the retirement, no question. Now, go out and enjoy it!!Best wishes from both Karen and I, & if you ever find yourself in Victoria, call me, text me or whatever. We'll do "coffee".
