Joe and Anne Lee were both very special friends to my parents, Norvin and Clara Wright. When my parent's health failed, both Joe and Anne were there to visit and show their support, including both of them driving to the hospital in Ft. Worth late at night to check on my mother who had a stroke. They probably should not have been driving at night, but nothing would stop them when someone was in need. After Anne passed, Joe continued to bring communion to my homebound parents and visit and attend birthday parties and gatherings we would have at my parent's home. A true servant of our Lord, Joe was an amazing man who will never know how much his visits meant to my parents. I know he is now... in the arms of Jesus celebrating. May God bless your family during this time of loss. Earl and Twana ConnorsRead more

I knew Joe as a volunteer at Manna and as a neighbor. He was always a dedicated volunteer, a helpful neighbor, and a true gentleman. He is missed by every person he touched.

I met Joe a few years ago through Central Christian Church while helping with meals on Wednesday nights. He had such a kind and loving soul to be around. We started a card group too, so I was able to enjoy more of his stories and his life for several months. I will miss him and his smile.
