Joe and Sarah were longtime members of Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Abilene. He and Sarah moved to the Waco area in 2010 for health reasons.

My condolences to the Nemeth family during this difficult time. In the Bible, Jehovah God gives us hope. Acts 24:15 says, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Revelation 21:4 says, “and he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more.” Very soon we will see the fulfillment of these promises here on Earth. We hope you find comfort in God’s promises.
