A dear friend from the early 70's... Many years have passed but Joel remains forever in times when we were all young, wild and full of life for me. I've many fond memories of Joel and times shared with him and our many mutual friends when he had an upstairs apartment on the main street of downtown Faribault. Many years have passed but Joel will live on forever in my memories as a kind, generous and loving friend. Rest easy in the arms of angels my friend..... Diana (a Canadian friend)
