Hello Cindy,
I too corresponded by Email with Joe as we both had a love of Sharps Borchardt's. They're so rare in England where I live that it took 50 years for me to actually see one for real. I've always wanted one and eventually I started to make my own from steel blocks. Joe was very encouraging in his Emails and could always answer my questions whenever I was doubtful about a dimension or an angle. I also corresponded with Whitey Hanson and was very sad to hear he lost his battle with Cancer. Like Joe I looked upon all single shot rifle aficionado's as very good friends. If there is an afterlife, then I certainly hope to meet up with both of them. As long as there are single shot riflemen I don't think either will be forgotten. I even remember Joe's days on the ASSRA Forum.

Respectfully

Harry Eales.

Hello Cindy,
Joe was one of my favorite people, although I never met him. Talked with him occasionally by phone, and emailed on occasion also. Whitey Hanson was a mutual friend also, and often it seemed the three of us ended up in 3 way swaps of gun parts. It was a lot of fun, and I feel privileged to have known both of them through this forum, and the ASSRA forum when they were there.
