Remembering Joe

Remembering Joe

He was a classmate
who passed away in this time
in which I am considering 
life and death..
Remembering his and my
time and place
which now color this moment
knowing now the illusion
of separation..
Death now found absorbed
in life..
Knowing now that
death has always
been so absorbed...


I regret to inform you that Joe Felber passed away early this morning (19 March) in Inova Fairfax (Virginia) Hospital of complications from pneumonia.  Joe was being treated for cancer, but became very ill yesterday morning and shortly thereafter Mary (Punkie) called EMT and he was evacuated to the hospital where he passed away later in the ICU there.

Arrangements are unknown at this time, but the class will be notified when they are known.  It was Joe's wish to be buried in Arlington National Cemetery.  Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Punkie and her family at this very sad time.

Very Repectfully,

Trent Crosby
