Purple, not flowers, construction fence

IMG-6552I passed this fence on my way to St. James Presbyterian Church to a meeting with colleague and friend Derrick McQueen. It was on St. Nicholas between the 145th Subway Station and the church. Interesting that it was purple.

Purple not flowers, celebrating a friend

We gathered today at the Presbyterian Center to celebrate and honor a friend. Joe Edmiston works in the payroll office for the Presbyterian Mission Agency. He has been with the church for over 20 years. Everyone knows him, most of us appreciate his wry sense of humor. He regularly did countdowns of the number of days to other significant days: so many days to the next holiday, for example.

Joe recently received a diagnosis of stage IV pancreatic cancer.

In shock and hope, his colleagues and friends put on purple today and gathered in the atrium at the Presbyterian Center to wish him a Happy Birthday. He’s in our hearts and thoughts and prayers.
