Dear Mr. Abraham. I'm sorry to hear of about Joseph. All my memories of him are as a young and healthy man who loved basketball. His great passion for the game was matched by his skill on the court.
Please remember, the immense grief of those left behind can never match the great joy that a loved one feels in the presence of God. My prayers are with you and family. Harley Alloway
