(Community Matters) Happy Birthday to one of my best friends, Joe Christie.
I was an baby adult when I met Joe, probably only 30 or 31 years old. He’s been a mentor, close friend, one of my best friends and one of the best story tellers I’ve ever known. Through Joe I’ve spent evenings with his best friend Charlie Wilson, heard insider and public stories, learned more about politics from the former State senator and once US Senate candidate than from any other source, gotten involved with the McDonald Observatory, and I’ve gained an additional family. Joe & Tana were among the first and probably the most enthusiastic supporters of Steven. Here’s to a great man, husband, father, grandfather and friend . . .
