So this week I would like to share an essay written by our niece, Kirsten. Joe touched so many lives - young and old. Kirsten this is amazing - Enjoy...
My Uncle Joe was a great person.... He dedicated his life to Cancer. Helping the people with it, worrying about all the people that have it, living it.
Joe was a Cancer survivor himself, but it came back in the year 2009. Right at that moment it became clear to my Aunt Rachel that there was a BIG challenge to face ahead.
Rachel is Joes wife, they got married in 2006. When you get married and say your vows... the one about," I will be there for you in sickness and in Health." That vow became true for Rachel.
Joe began treatment once again, but this time it wasn’t easy for him. Considering Joe had brain cancer, and caner all down his spine. Joe fought and he fought hard, so when you think of Joe, I hope these words come to mind: LEAD, GIVE, SERVE, HELP, SHARE.
When you say or hear the name Joe Vogel, or Rachel Vogel. You should think, or say after a kind word in prayer for them......say" THANK GOD!!!JOE WAS HERE!!!"
I LOVE AND MISS YOU!!
P.S. Rachel... thanks for assisting him in his work of wonder.
Hope everyone is doing well and GO TWINS!
Love - Rach
