I am sorry to hear about Mr Joe he was a hard acting man with a heart of gold he helped me through some bad times in my younger days and I'll always be grateful god bless you all

Tommy toler , Bloomingdale, Ga

My sincerest condolences go out to your family, it's never easy losing someone in death. May you take comfort in God's promise found at Revelation 21:4, which says "he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This verse brought me peace when I experienced loss, I hope it can do the same for you. May the memories you have give you strength during this difficult time.

Jae Mckenzie , Savannah , GA

Harriett, So sorry...My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.

Our Deepest Sympathy to each of you.. May it be a comfort to know 'Joe is at rest' Our Heavenly Father promises in heaven there is no sickness, no sadness, no sorrow, no tears. May the Holy Spirit fill your hearts with peace, to comfort you and give you strength at this saddest time. We have lost a Dear Friend and everyone has lost a Good Man.
