Friday, February 9, 2018Our condolences to you Helen and your family. We prayed for you this morning and praised God for the ministry you and Joe had in Africa and here at home. God is good and Joe is enjoying the ultimate fellowship with his savior, Jesus Christ. We are passing along condolences from Dorothy's father Jacob who's room at Tabor Long Term Care was next to Joe's. Dorothy communicated briefly with Joe on Sunday, January 14th when he was sitting at the dinning table waiting for his breakfast - the next day we left for our vacation in Mexico, from which we are sending this message. Obviously we will not be able to attend Joe's funeral. God bless you.

Wednesday, February 7, 2018Joe was a colleague when I was on the faculty of the Public Health College in Gondar, Ethiopia from 1967-69. Joe and Helen were wonderful mentors for us as "newbies" in Ethiopia. We lived across the street from them in Gondar, and our families became good friends. We have many great memories from those years. My sincere condolences to Helen and the family. Ed Dodge, MD
