Kathleen and David,
I personally send you and your children and grandchildren my deepest sympathy for the passing of Joseph. Knowing the love of simplicity, humility and honor that you all provide throughout your lives, is precious in this day and age. God's love is very powerful. It is steadfast, unending. This is exactly how Joseph's love will continue on. This is how you will persevere and endure throughout this time ahead of you. Your faith is built on solid foundation. My heart aches with yours, because we are human and we are created to feel emotions.
Spiritually, I rejoice in knowing and praying that your beloved Joseph, no longer has to suffer Earthly pain or worries. His soul is much needed for Spiritual battle. He will always be STAFF SGT. JOSEPH; now he can be the Hero that he was called to be, with that statement alone, I am so proud to know and honor him. I will forever think of him, his children, his family, his friends, his comrades and mostly his love.
I wish to remain in touch with you and your loving family. So please contact me whenever you feel the need, I will also check in with you.
With God's graceful love,
Valerie Rose Powers
