One of our church members this week passed away. Joe was one of the persons in charge of welcoming persons into the church and getting them involved in the church and helping them become members. He also had a heart for helping our youth of the church become active church members. Joe lived a wonderful life as a husband, father, church elder, and military officer. Most of all he was a follower of Christ and it showed in every part of his life. Lord, bless you Joe and your family, and thanks for modeling Jesus to all of us young kids. At the end of the service we witnessed the flag presentation and military honors for Joe. When the rifles were shot outside the church, I lost it, had never experienced this kind of service before in my life.
