Joe Hedgepeth has been my friend for over 20 years he is a great guy that always had a smile on his face. He is the husband of Erica (another close friend) and the father of 3 young children. He suffered a stroke and the prognosis is not optimisitc. His family needs not only prayers but support to help defray the costs of having him in the hospital and to cover their living expenses to get them through this difficult time.I know the holidays are rough on everyone but not as rough as they will be for this wonderful family. Please help if you can and if you can't more prayers are always appreciated. I didn't want to remove the orginal post so here is the update. Joe Has passed on leaving behind a grieving family and many friends who will miss him dearly. All donantions are appreciated as they will help Erica to not have to worry about financial burden on top of all she already needs to cope with.
