We don't have enough prayers to send to ODU assistant Trina Patterson, who lost her uncle on Sunday when he was shot driving home from church in Newport News.
Joseph Henry Williams Jr. was 71 years old. He was driving in the East End of the city when he was caught in crossfire. He was a deacon at Triumph Christian Center.
"He was a mentor to people in the church,"pastor Reginald Dawkins told the Daily Press. "He will be missed. He was a pillar of this congregation."
Our thoughts and prayers to Patterson, a native of the area and first-year assistant to ODU coach Karen Barefoot.
