I’ve always looked up to you -so kind to me, bright, detailed, well thought out. You have helped me better bridge my understanding of energy/life that exists beyond our human senses. Thank you for encouraging me to keep exploring with an open mind. Wish I could have come sit quietly with you & offer you closer support. I love & miss you Uncle Joe!
