    When I received the announcement that you had transitioned to the other side, all I could do was to sit and say, truly a dear friend of mine have passed away. Even today there are many who wonder how we grew to be so bonded. I will miss calling you "Pops". Until the saints go marching in, may your soul rest in piece. Pastor, Joe and Elizabeth A. Mole III

    We are so sorry to hear about Mr. Joyner's passing. The loss of a loved one is difficult, but our Heavenly Father gives us reason for hope. He promises at Revelation 21:4 and Isaiah 25:8 to put an end to tears, pain, and death. Reflecting on this divine promise can help strengthen your family for the days to come. Take care.
