Thank you soooo much for setting up the blog. The blog comments are so comforting. We are being incredibly supported in CA and we feel the prayers of everyone. Joey's wonderful friends have surrounded us. Our CA friends are carrying us. We go to the mortuary this morning. It is the first time we have seen Joey, and it will be our last on this earth.
We went to his house last night and saw his bed where he died of a seizure. He had his Bible next to him and the book I had given him last week, "Wild at Heart". I am carrying his shirt with me so I can smell him. He was such an incredible, gifted person---so full of life and love. It is hard to let him go and we will miss him beyond description. He brought so much energy and enthusiasm and hope to our lives. My prayer is that Jesus is holding him now, encouraging him, and that he is smiling down, saying it's okay, Mama. I will so miss hearing him call me that.
Please thank everyone for us. I am so grateful for our community on Maui.
Much love to everyone who is there for us,
Karen and Joe
