    Mr Enook, although we never met in person, I felt we all got to know you throughout your years of dedication and service. through times of trouble and uneasiness we felt in the Legislature, you were a calm voice of reason and strength.

    It was with shock and sorrow we heard of your passing and I hope your Family gathers strength from our People.

    Rest easy.

    I only knew Joe Enook from what I saw in the news and in Legislature. He may not have always been the most diplomatic, and sometimes could come across as a little abrasive. However, it was always apparent that he was working hard for his constituency and for the territory. I believe he was likely one of the most respected members in the assembly by the general public. Condolences to his friends and family.

    I met Joe on my trip back to Pang in 2003, he was a very welcoming person while I stayed with him and Mary . When they came to stay with me here in England he was so good taking my little dog for a walk every day and enjoyed it.
    Dear Joe so sorry you have left this earth so soon. God bless heaven will enjoy your company as we did here . Xxx
