Shortly after Joe retired as our pastor,I sent him a letter that contained a passage of scripture from 1 Thessalonians 1:Vs.2-3 which reads,"We always thank God for you,mentioning you in our prayers.We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith,your labor prompted by love,and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ."I feel blessed that our life paths crossed in this world,Joseph.
