Joe was always kind to me. I enjoyed chatting
with him back stage at the Luhrs Center.
If we ask God why terrible things happen in this life, He would probably answer
that suffering allows us the opportunity to show love and kindness to our neighbors.
I know he'll be missed
To Jan, children and grandchildren...so
