Joseph reveals, "My paternal grandmother, Patricia Habedank, affectionately known as "Grandma", went to live with Jesus earlier this afternoon.
"We plan to celebrate her life, as a family, sometime next month, but in the meantime, as cliché as it sounds, I know she would want me to sing. So that's what I'll do. She was such a big supporter of our ministry and loved that I sang about Jesus.
"If you would, please pray for my Dad, my Grandpap, and our family as we navigate through this great loss. We are so grateful for her legacy.
"Her last words to her grandchildren (via video) were: "I love you, I miss you, I'll see you soon. I'll be home there." She's finally at home... there. I love you, Gram."
