I just got the message the memorial is today. I will be there in spirit and will be thinking beautiful thoughts of my brother all day. No words can describe how sorry I am for your loss. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. PSALM 34:18.

I'm so sorry to hear that Joe passed. I met Joe in Jefferson County Little League and we became good friends. We used to practice and played against each other, having great times. I remember his smile, and was glad to call him my friend...God speed, my friend.
