My entire family were sadden to hear about lil Joey. My mom was best friends with Paula and Joe growing up. So my sister Jeanette and I kinda grew up with Joey and Emily. Haven’t spoken to him in years but always considered them as family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this difficult time.

Joey was one of the most kind hearted people I ever met in my life and even though there’s a 13 year gap I watched him grow up from a two-year-old two grown men with children trying to watch them grow. He’s one of the greatest guys I’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting in my life.
