Joseph Edward Gehring, Jr.
Answer one question or many - using words, photos or other media.
What words of comfort can you offer Joe's family and friends?
Joe died suddenly and far, far too soon. But he lived, really lived, every day. He never skimped on life. He went places, saw things, did things, bought things, and said things to others-- he was open and unreserved in love. He denied no interest and put nothing off for next week, or next year. If it was fun, or he wanted it, he made it happen. He learned every day, mastering things that struck him with obsession-like determination, until he was drawn into another interest. He made a difference in my life, and continues, after all these years, to be a part of who I am. I will not forget him, I will not stop being grateful for the years we had together.
