Hi Darren and friends
I have written a short tribute to Joe on my website today - was a healing
thing to help me come to terms with the loss I feel and to acknowledge Joe,
have included a few links to Joe in action on Yutube, an interview and
Rainbow Valley Farm.
I have offered Trish and those supporting her at Rainbow Valley farm to pass
on news to alleviate the pressures on them at this time. Will be posting
updates on the PeopleCare forum where there's a space to share memories -
his legacy lives on...
