    My heartfelt sympathy to Beth and the rest of the family. Joe was loved by so many, and had a tremendous impact on my life. May The Lord wrap His arms around all of you, comforting you with the certainty that Joe is now resting with Him.

    We are shocked and so very sorry to learn of Joe’s death. GOD decided Joe’s work here was finished and he is needed now to pray for protection for all his loved ones and all the problems in our world. We will certainly pray for his dear soul. May he have eternal rest.
    I will write more later Beth. Take care in the arms of our sweet Lord. Love, Ed & Mary Ann

    His wife might be able to call around to furaenl parlors beforehand and explain the situation and prearrange everything. She may just be billed for the expenses. I know it sounds horrible to have to do such a thing before someone actually dies, but it is more common than you might think.
