    I met Joe ten years ago at Joy Outreach Fellowship. What impressed me most about Joe were his ready smile, sense of humor, and love for the Lord! Margo, I have been praying for you that the Lord would wrap His arms around you to comfort you and let you feel His compasionate love. Love, Jerry Anne
