    My deepest condolences to the entire Hemenway Family and especially to his children. Joe was very proud of you all. Though I don’t know any of you personally, every year at tax time, 90% of my 2 hour appointment would be occupied by great discussions on higher education, family, politics, sports and Creighton basketball. Joe always had an opinion and great insight on a variety of topics. I always felt bad for the client who followed my appointment. Joe always ran over. The anxiety of the tax season was always offset with the anticipation of a conversation with Joe. A true renaissance man. His kids have a lot to be proud of. Joe will truly be missed. Rest in Peace my friend.

    Our hearts and sympathy go out to the entire Hemenway family.
    Your dad and grandpa was an amazing man, a great friend and mentor! Everyone who ever met Joe was lucky and blessed!

    God bless him and all of you!
