Dear Richard,

      Thank you. I did not know that Joe z"l had passed away.
Baruch Dayan Emet (Bless G-D, The True Judge).

       Joe had been a good friend, and after first meeting him in 1978 at Magain Avoth Synagogue on Shabbat while praying, I visited his home in 1981, and after; I would meet him at conventions, till 2009 I think.

        I was not able to attend his auction in NYC, sabotaged by a certain dealer, since Joe spurned his advances to 'curate' Joe's sale; Joe's response had been,"My collection's quality speaks for itself". It should have, if that shameful person, unduly respected in my opinion in the ICSBS, had not behaved disgustingly and badmouthed a superb collection owned by a truly honest, ethical and kind man, hurting him financially and insulting his good name.

       And I believe that Joe stopped attending conventions at least partially, because of that behavior by that person.

       May Joseph Grimberg's memory be for a blessing, and may his family know no more sorrow.
Best,
Joey
