Thoughts on Second Month ...

As many of you remembered, today is the second month anniversary of Joey's death. I knew this will be a very sad day for Joe and Karen, and for everyone who loves and misses Joe(y), so a week before today I already have a plan on what I will post here. I have 2 quotes on grieving and I have an idea of what photos I will include. While e-mailing Karen a couple days ago I told her that I already have a post ready for today, unless a new "revelation" comes. Well... it seems like a "revelation" happened.

Early this morning, I was re-reading the post from yesterday and enjoying that photo of the 3 generations J. I thought to myself "Oh, I would leave this post up one more day because the photo is so precious" And then another thought came "And after this I will post that funny photo and story of JJ I got a couple of days ago".

It was only after I read Kelly's comment on that post that I got reminded today is the 2nd month anniversary! I was going to rush posting the quotes, when I stopped and thought "hey... what would Joey want me to post today?" And the post above from JoAnne came to mind.

I think it's not a mistake. I think it's really meant to be. If Joey were alive today, and we would ask him how would you like to be remembered on your 2nd month death anniversary, he would probably want something like this. Knowing Joey, he would want it to be fun.

And so dear Karen and Joe, I hope the post above Fun Memories With JJ (by JoAnne)brought smiles in your faces, amidst painful emotions remembering Joey's passing and missing him.
