As I greeted Joe as “Giuseppe” he greeted me always as “My Brother.” Joe, Senator Alen Cranston and I share the same birthday of June 19th (Juneteenth). When Senator Cranston was alive, Joe would arrange birthday greetings between the three of us. After Senator Cranston passed away Joe would say “It’s our day Brother! Let’s enjoy it!” Joe Cerrell climbed to the top of the ladder. There will never be another political consultant who can climb so high and see so far into the future as he has. ''Info on Cerrell's memorial is here.
