My condolences to the entire and extended family of Joel.  Joel was a valued and important part of the success of our company, but more importantly part of our corporate family.  He always wanted to do a good job, but he specially desired to serve a customer in Quebec with whom he had begun to strongly identify with and appreciate.  I wish Joel peace, both physically and spiritually.  I also have Bob in mind very much as no one should have to see a child to the end. Joel is in my thoughts everyday, but so is Bob, who has been through so much with his two sons recently.  I hope you can settle and relax as soon as possible, Bob.
