The Reverend Ephram Samuels: Joseph Michael Lesile, a man, like us, in the beloved eyes of God. Challenged by the traits that God bestowed, such a split could divide a man in two - but not Joseph. He lived as one man his whole life; despite the inequality, despite the hate. He took his own life not for loving wrong, but for loving too much. Some will say he died a cowardly death, but he lived a courageous life. Let’s remember that.
