My deepest condolences to the Tankersley family. Joel and I attended both high school and college together. We bonded because of our love for basketball and we continued playing together through out our college days. We were roommates for most of the college days. We also shared a love for our Lord and savior over the years and I will certainly miss Joel's wisdom and concern for others. I was honored to serve in Joel and Sally's wedding which occurred one week after my own wedding. I cannot ever recall any harsh words or disagreements between us, even when Joel out scored me in a basketball game. To Joel I would say welcome to heaven and your reunion with your beloved Sally. Rest in Gods arms my brother
