    Hey Joe!

    I’m trying to find you! Your name came up the other day….I think it had to do with Labor Day, or light reflection and refraction or HerbBurgers….or all of the above! Anyway, my family has been thinking of you fondly and we wanted to check in and see how you’re doing. Maybe we can have you over sometime soon so we can all catch up? Let me know if you’re still in the area and if you have any time over the summer to get together!

    All the best,
