Brian's grandfather, Joe Moore III, went to his eternal home on Saturday morning. We are so thankful that he didn't suffer very long. He led an incredible life; graduated from the US Naval Academy and spent his first career serving our country in the Navy. He is the only person I know who has been to all 7 continents and has circumnavigated the globe by sea and air. Brian says that it is from him that he learned how to treat his wife. Grandpa Joe, thank you for teaching your grandsons how to respect, care, and love for their wives, how to work with integrity and diligence, how to serve the body of Christ through gracious giving of time and resources, how to think for themselves and use the intelligence and gifts God bestowed on them, and how to be strong and courageous in the battles in their lives. We love you and know that you are holding hands with Grandma Irene as you worship God in heaven.
I am SO grateful that I have made taking photos a part of my life the past 8 years. These are the only photos I have of Grandpa Joe. They were taken in 2006 when Chris, Shanda, Brian and I went to visit him one weekend.
