Condolence: There were managers and there were managers, but Joe was all by himself. Joe's group at Armonk ran like a clock. There were no problems and that was because of him. He was not the typical IBM 'suit'. Joe was a man. A three-dimensional man in a world of two-dimensional men. We'll all miss him, but we still have the great memories.
I'll see you again, Joe. Somewhere up ahead. Thanks for being a good friend.
