Joe loved planes. Every weekend and holiday would find him at the airfield. He thought the world of the Blue Angels. They were the ultimate pilots in Joe’s opinion. One Saturday Joe arrived at the airfield and was greeting all his pilot friends. Even the mechanics thought dearly of Old Joe, as everyone fondly called him. According to some he had been at the airfield forever. Today was a special day. The Blue Angels were going to land to refuel. Old Joe was so excited. After they had landed he was running around talking to each of them. To hear him talk, that was the most excitement he had ever had. The next day Old Joe never showed up, but his son did. Old Joe had died during the night. After his cremation the Blue Angels came back and took Old Joe for his first plane ride ever.
