Joel was a great, fun dude! The kind of guy you were honored to know. Him and Karen made the perfect couple. If you needed a favor they were there or if you just wanted to hang around and kill some time with some great folks, they were there too! God just bought one of his favorites back home. I'll miss you Joel.

I dont know them personally but my daughter was in class with their son last year. She came home and told me and was very upset! My heart breaks for his wife and children we will pray for them.
