To the Lachapelle family: I was a classmate of Joe's at Winthrop High School. Our paths crossed periodically and he will always be remembered by me as a kind and gentle person. My thoughts are sent to the entire family at this time of loss. May you know that he touched the lives of many in his own way through the years. Sincerely, Margo Boyd
