45 years ago, Preacher Joe led my husband, Donnie Gamble, to the Lord. I will always be thankful that he was our 1st pastor as a married couple. I am so sorry for his family & know that they will miss him greatly, but Preacher Joe is rejoicing in the presence of the angels today & worshiping his Savior face to face.
