    Dearest Joe,
    I regret I never met Joey but remembering your loving words about him lets me know I would have loved him too. This journey you are taking without him will be the hardest of your life. There are no words that can make this hurt less for you. Time will not take away the heartache, but time will make it different. I pray the Lord’s blessings that He might give you peace. He is able!

    I remember the hot tea Joey and I shared each morning at Rickwood Caverns when we had our family reunion. He was such good company, so polite and so easy to love. My happy mornings with him will forever warm my heart. God bless his family and friends.
