While Joe's friends and family in Newcastle were remebering him in a day of celebration, a parallel event was held by friends and family in Lochem, where Joe made his home with Rianne and Mariza.
In the garden in Lochem, a memorial place was made for the ceremony: a wooden floor where Joe used to practice his tap-dancing, clogging, juggling, violin-playing etc. On it were placed a picture of his last formal solo-performance (4th June 2005, Zevenaar, De Lantaern), his wooden shoes, his bike, a big candle, lots of flowers.
About 70 people, family and close friends, attended the ceremony, all sitting in a circle around the memorial place.
