Bro Joe was a Fine Christian Believer of the Message and Messenger William Marrion Branham. Joe was a fine gentile man with a godly family. God rest his precious soul till we all meet on that glorious resurrection morning when we shall all meet for Eternity. God bless my Bro and precious family. Rest my Bro, pain shall you never suffer again. Satan lost again, God needed another flower for his bouquet.

My heart is forever broken, I know you are not suffering anymore my little brother, you know how much I loved you.. There was never a more kind person on this earth than you. You were such an inspiration to me , no matter how rough things were for you, you never complained, I will continue to always be there for your family . Our family circle is broken now, until we meet again, we will try to carry on. Even though I know that you are in a better place now, the separation from your smiling face hurts like no pain I have ever felt before,,I love you always and will be looking forward to the day we meet again. Love Tina
