Though the day so bright begun, clouds now hide tomorrow's sun; and so it is for me to hear about the passing of Joseph Pierce. I reconnected with him about 2 1/2 months ago when he signed onto this site. He was one of my best friends(our mothers were best friends years ago) that I had not spoken to in 39 years. We talked, exchanged telephone numbers and he told me about his military service, pastoring and his career in the ministry. He was so excited about it all and of his Christian work. He also mentioned the health experience that he had recently encountered. He told me about having a minor heart attack 3 weeks earlier in the doctor's office and a week later having heart surgery. In the conversation, he also mentioned that he was doing too much but was glad to get back into his routine and he felt better. He was so committed to the Lord's work. He could not come to the reunion because it was at the same time as a church convention. I am still in a state of shock but I am praying for the Pierce family and know that there is certainly a special place for Joseph in Heaven.

I am deeply filled with sorrow about the passing of my dear friend Pastor Joseph Pierce. I'm truly going to miss you. I know you are in a better place now.
