Our hearts are broken with the pain of the loss of this great man, but Oh what a Treasure Heaven has gained! Joe was one of the most wonderful, caring, loving friends I have ever known. Such a gentleman, and always so understanding and considerate of others. He loved good music and the hills of Tennessee. Im thankful for the pleasure of knowing Joe Mallette as a close friend, glad that he knew the Lord Jesus as his savior, and I hope his Heavenly mansion sits in those peaceful hills that he longed for. Rest in Precious Peace, my dear friend.
