    If you are real lucky, you will meet one, maybe two people in your lifetime you consider a true friend. I’m not talking about people you knew from school or work or neighborhood. I’m talking about that one person in your life who knows all your faults and still has your back. That one person no matter how many miles and years separate you in adulthood still remains dear and near to your heart. I was blessed to have Joe as my great friend and I’v treasured that friendship for nearly 60 years. Funny, when I think back on our friendship I can’t pinpoint exactly what brought us together. On the surface we were very different. I was rough around the edges while Joe I considered more balanced. More rounded. To me, Joe was a genius who could do anything he set his mind to. We sat together in school for several years and then lived together in a flat in Dublin for more. We had our tiffs, as most friends do, but they never touched our friendship. We both had a deep love for Simon & Garfunkel as well as Leonard Cohen and listened to them incessantly in our Rathmines flat. Joe eventually moved back to Thurles and I met Marguerite and moved to the US. The excitement in Joe’s tone when he first told me about Julie let me know that he had found his life partner. I say this to anyone who will listen….how lucky and blessed was Joe to have had Julie in his life… . As is often the case, with the miles and growing families we did not communicate as much as we should over the years, but when we did, it was like we never missed a beat. Thank God for Facebook and Messenger….it kept me abreast of Joe’s love of conspiracy theories, but most important it showed the deep love Joe had for his family. I know them, though him. Friends like Joe come along once in a lifetime if you are lucky….how lucky am I to have had Joseph O’Regan as a friend of mine. My deepest condolences to Julie and her beautiful family.
