I will always remember brother Joe as a kind and gentle man of God who stood strongly without apology on God's Word. I met him around 40 years ago and never have seen him waiver in his faith in our Lord Jesus. Consistency and steadfastness will be part of his legacy as well as a strong love for the Lord.
The world is a little more dimmer without him. He will be missed.
I thank God for his friendship and leadership and rejoice in his inheritance!
