We love you family, and we really loved Deacon Joe. Remember, as the Bible says, “To be absent in the body, is to be present with the Lord. Hold on to God’s unchanging hand and He will give you joy in the morning. We love you ALL!

Rest easy daddy. Words can not express the pain I feel in my heart but, I know you're in a better place and no longer suffering.
