    Joe, it was an absolute honor to get to know you and sweet Audrey when I worked at Paddock Ridge. I treasure the devotional you passed along to me from MsAudrey…. What a life she had and what a life well lived FOR the Lord. Keeping you in prayer, you were an amazing example of “for better or worse, in sickness and health” what a treasure you both had in one another!
