    Wish to share many fond memories of Joe. I began coming to Walgreens for prescriptions when I moved to the area in the late 1980s. Joe ALWAYS took time to help me or my husband Ried find and understand over-the-counter or prescription medication, often going out of his way to provide information and giving unrushed, friendly service. He watched my children grow up, helping them through various medical prescriptions through the years. He made our local Walgreens feel like part of a small town with a very caring pharmacist. Once, when I mentioned I was impressed he remembered my name, he kindly remarked that Of course he did, after 20 years of serving my family. Both my husband and I felt sad we hadn’t known of his retirement until after the fact, because we would have liked to tell him of our appreciation for his years of caring service. So now we can at least share our appreciation of his humble grace to his many loved ones as they remember him. He truly made the world a kinder, better place.
