I don't know you and you don't know me. I was looking for lyrics to a song and I can to this website. My curiosity too over and I began browsing through this site. Joey seemed to be an amazing young man.. I sat and cried as I read some of these posts. It's hard to explain but I needed a reminder of never knowing when your last day is. I thank you for that. I will be praying for your family as the year mark of Joey's entry into Heaven. Hopefully I'll meet him up there one day! :)
God Bless.

Courtney,
Your comment means so much to us. It's a blessing to know that Joey's Memory Blog continues to touch people, even those who we've never met. Thank you for leaving that comment. That was an encouragement ad a blessing to us.

Our neighbors son was killed in Iraq 2 years ago on January 27th. I was reminded of this as the family lined the street with flags and had a sign with their son's name and the statement "Please remember freedom is not free..in loving memory".

I took that so much to heart this year as I thought about the loss of our precious Joey and how we don't want him to be forgotten.

So, I took the time to thank this mother for her precious sacrifice that she gave for our country and laid flowers on her son's memorial with a note letting her know that he was not fogotten.

It was a heart wrenching time for me as I cried for this family and for Joe and Karen and the loss of their precious Joey...who is not forgotten and loved and missed by many.

The hope is we will see both these young men again when we join them in heaven - thank you Lord for your gift of salvation.

Love and miss you JJ.
