    Our warmest sympathies goes to you and yours in these difficult moments. May you find strength from the words of 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 3 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. What a loving God who cares about each one of us. He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection right here on earth when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us. You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.

    Uncle Joe, There are childhood memories I can recall in your yard on any given Sunday morning as I would find something to play with & keep busy until my mom was ready to go home or just sitting on the porch having conversations with you. Those were the good ole days!!! Thirty plus years later Zion loved going to Uncle Joe’s when visiting for the summer, oh it was like a kid’s mystery land to him. He would dig and find everything in that yard & most importantly have little talks with you. Thanks Uncle Joe for your cares & love for they will never be forgotten. Rest on in Heaven & how I pray to live to be 93+. ??
