It is amazing how some people in our lives can touch us in certain ways that bring joy, laughter and happiness. I only met Joseph a couple of months ago, when I joined the ranks at the Josephine County Food Bank. As a rookie, Joseph taught me the in's and outs of food collection from our local retailers. His patience, passion and giving for those with lesser things than he, inspired me from the get go! He truly had a big heart and desire to help others. Even though our time together was short, his memory will live my lifetime. RIP my friend and condolences to those he touched.
