My sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Joe. It can be very difficult and distressing to cope with the loss of a loved one. It has helped myself and others knowing that our dear loved ones now rest in the loving memory of our Grand Creator, Jehovah.(Psalms 83:18-God's name). May you be comforted in knowing that Jehovah hates death.(1 Cor 15:26). And promises to eliminate death forever and bring ones sleeping in death back to life on a cleansed earth. ( John 17:3; Isaiah 25:7,8; Acts 24:15; Rev. 21:4,5; Psalms 37:10,11,29). I hope these few scriptures along with your own good and loving memories of Joe help to bring comfort, peace and a hope.

Through the different seasons of life Jwfacts.org has been a valuable resource and we thoughtfully share. We are very grateful for Joe's military service in the US Army, having defended the freedoms that we patriotic Americans enjoy today. Earth has no sorrows that Heaven cannot heal.

Joe was my neighbor for 7 years. But he was much more than that to me and my daughter. He was a friend,father figure, grandfather figure and most of all part of our family. We will miss him dearly and cherish the memories we have with him. We love you Joe❤
