Condolences to the immediate family on the loss of a very decent, kind, and gentle cousin of mine. Our times together at the family reunions were special, as I recall his homespun wit and humor. I take great satisfaction in the fact that my late mother, Nancy Damewood Phipps, so honored her first cousin by bestowing on me his middle name, Eugene. Rest in peace, Joe.
