    Bronxville NYDear Jane,

    Please accept our condolences on the loss of your son, Joel. We didn’t know Joel, but we have grown children of our own, and we can’t imagine the pain that must accompany losing one who has held such a place in your heart as Joel did.

    We hope that the support of family and friends gives you comfort in these earliest days and that soon your fond memories will displace the deepest sadness.

    Love to you,

    Alice and Mike Olson

    Skjei family,
    sorry to hear about Joey. I had not seen him for many years.As a parent I believe one of the worlds greatest tragedies is the loss of a child. I wish you many great memories in the years to come. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know Joey is in good conpany, probably playing cards with Gramps(Russ) or telling a bunch of kids stories.

    Sorry to hear about the loss of Joel. I went to Ben and North with him and was a hockey fan so knew him through that. Missed him at the class reunions. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this most difficult time.

    I worked with Joel many years ago. We became friends and spent a lot of time together. Unfortunately we lost touch about 10 years ago. My deepest sympathy goes out to you.

    I worked with and became friends with Joel many years ago. He had a true and kind heart and a personality that welcomed all. He always shared his ideas and passions but never failed to listen and truly hear others.

    I feel blessed to have known him.
    My heartfelt condolences go out to his family.
