How did St. Joseph die?
I just heard out of the "corner of my ear" on EWTN while doing something else that St. Joseph died in the presence of Jesus and Mary. I had once heard that it was assumed that Joseph passed away before Jesus died, but never heard anything so specific as that Joseph died in the presence of Jesus and Mary. What is the research and/or tradition on Joseph's lifespan and when, where, and in whose presence was he when he died?
