This happened so close to my house. I think about it continuously. I am so sorry for the family and most especially the children.

Our deepest sympathy to the Tolpin family. I coached Joe in soccer in high school. What a fine young man who gave it all. Short story, Joe got little playing time. However, when we were playing tournament ball we practiced penalty kicks every day. Joe became one of the chosen ones. When we went to PK's Joe made his and did a series of summersaults to the far goal post and began doing chinups. With his million dollar smile. We were playing away, and boy were they pissed.
That was the Joe Tolpin I will always remember and love.

Dearest, sweetest Barbie and your incredible beloveds,
It is so meaningful to my Mom and me that you found the strength to call and let us know directly of Joe's horrible accident. She cried to me that she is so sad not to be able to be physically right there beside you, holding you tight as you move through the days ahead. You can be sure that she is holding you in her heart and in her thoughts. Our families' hopes and dreams have long been intertwined, as we have experienced joy and sadness throughout our lives, caring and feeling each for the other. We are so, so sorry for this immeasurable loss.
Love, Esther Nan and, of course, Morris and most of all, Toby

Joe was my boss, a mentor and became on of my closest friends over the past 3 and half years. He made each day not feel like work, but a place where fun was not a bad thing. We talked about being fathers and how we loved where we were in our lives. I truly send my condolences and love to you all. We spend Tuesday having one or our best days I can remember at work. I will miss him always.
