    Joel was a great guy. A lot of fun to have around. The world is a little darker without him….but a little bit brighter having had him for even such a short time. May you rest in peace Joel, you’ve earned it.

    Joel’s ever present smile and good humor kept all of us in the dialysis waiting room charmed. Even when he wasn’t feeling up to par he managed to light up the room. His presence on earth will be deeply missed, but the angels in heaven are rejoicing and welcoming him home. May God Bless.
