Dear Joe- Though I may not have known you for long, I think it’s worth coming back to pay my respects. You were a great friend on server 84 of Ark Survival Evolved. You helped us all, and we were blessed by your early morning ‘hello 84!’. I’m sorry we never got to get close. You’re a great man whom I’ll never forget. From one life to the next. Godspeed, Joseph. -Former Ark Trader Co Reborn Leader
