I want to express my condolences to your family and friends over the loss of your love one. In times like this a comforting word is welcomed. May you receive strength and comfort from the God who promise to “swallow up death forever” and give us a hope of a “resurrection”. - Isaiah 25:8; Acts 24:15.

Joe will be missed. He was one of the good guys. He never said a bad thing about anybody and no one could say bad thing about him.
