I will greatly miss Joe. He meant a lot to me. I still remember as a child, Joe, had shown me a rug he used to pray on and there were two holes where his knees rested. He said it was the second rug he used. I still teach this in my Sunday School class. Wish I was there. Love and prayers. Aggie

My sincere condolences to Pastor Sam & Debbie and all the others in the family. One thing is for certain and that is that you have the peace of God that passeth all understanding because you know that Joe went home to be with Jesus and his beloved Maxine. He is out of his misery and walking on streets of gold. It will be very soon when we all will take that final breath and go on home to be with Jesus. Are you ready for that? If not, please invite Jesus into your heart today before it’s too late. God bless you. Thank you Joe for being a such a good friend to me. I remember when Joe & Maxine sang a duet at our church “Thanks to Calvary”. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place. That’s just one of many memories.

What can I say about a man who was always ready to reason and offer his guidance to family & dear friends through the eyes of the Lord. His wisdom and love for God was strong, yet gentle, but always forthright. Mac & Joe will always have a special part of my heart. My deepest sympathy to the whole family. Love & Prayers.
