    I wish you were here, I love you Dad.

    My deal old friend, even though we had not seen each other in many years, it gave me joy knowing that you were out there, living happy and being a daddy and husband. Much of the beauty has left my world with your departure.

    As Joel’s former “boss,” as he called me, I could not have asked for a finer human being to work with when I was a Dean at DeVry. He was one of the best hires I ever made. When he subbed for me while I was on maternity leave in 1984, I jokingly told him that he’d have my job. His integrity was beyond reproach. We all adored Joel. He was everything described in his obituary, and more. He was a generous and magnificant man. We hope these words are of comfort to his family.

    -Leanne and George Murray
