Sending our thoughts and prayers….

We met Joe a couple of years ago at our church. We adopted him into our family immediately. He had the kindest heart that we had ever seen. He loved his family so very much, especially his daughters. He changed our lives by simply being in it. Our hearts are so broken, but we know that he loved Jesus too. Joe brought smiles everywhere he went. He could light up a room like no other. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He was the greatest, kindest, soft hearted friend, and once you became his friend, you certainly knew it and could feel the love from him. We loved Joe so very much. He will be greatly missed. He was truly one of the very BEST.

Deepest Sympathy

Rosalie, I’m so very saddened to learn of Joseph’s death. Over the years, I thought about him many times—- remembering how he and Andrew were such good friends. I can still see him playing with the G.I. Joe’s in the back yard.
You and Joseph’s family have my sympathy.
