    Terri, I am out of touch with all Sedonans, I came across this and want to say what a greet man Joe was, I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He loved and respected my Bill as so many did. My sincerest condolences to you and yours. it will be four years on September 3rd, that I lost the love of my life. It is hard to believe, but he is with me in my heart and always will be as I am sure your lovely Joe is too.<br />With respect,<br />terri Pritchard. Myoldflame@skywerx.com

    Terry, I've just learned of Joe's passing and I am so sorry. He and you were so generous when we vissited Sedona even though you had to be out of town but we did visit KAZM and found it to be a super operation. You may recall we had dinner together at Pelican Club in New Orleans when the radio show was there some years ago.<br />Jere and I remember you both and often think of y'all. Joe will be fondly remembered by us and I'm sure untold number of others.<br />Best,<br />Ray
