Joey - that’s how I will always remember him, my cousin on my Dad’s side. He had a big heart and a good soul, could never do enough for his Mom, Auntie Annie. He was always fun to be with when we were kids. Peace & Love Joey....

Dear Millie & Family,
So very sorry to hear of Joey's passing. He was such a great person. I will never forget him. I remember all the fun we had together way back when, he always made me laugh, such a great sense of humor. He was a kind loveable person and now he is with that wonderful angel, Gramma Annie. I hope you find comfort in all the wonderful memories he gave. May he rest in peace. God Bless you all! All my love, Patty
e. God Bless you all!!!
