A message from Tim Webber… On May 19, 2002, my very good friend, Joe, died Sunday after the Preakness. Joe loved horse racing; in fact, a racehorse was named after him.

Last Thursday, I spoke at Wesley Freedom United Methodist Church’s recovery service. There were many people there who were struggling to get their lives back.
