We will miss you Joe Joe! The boys know you are their angel now, and we know you will watch over all of our children. We love you and will see you again one day. I asked for a cardinal as a sign that you're okay, and you sent 3 of them to Brit's house the next morning for me, Timmy and Brit to see. Fly high our goofy, fun and sweet angel.

Jojo was my first love! I will always cherish the years I spent with him, and although things didn’t work between us, I was still lucky to call him my friend. He was always there for me when I needed advice, or someone to talk to. That shows the kind of person he was. He had a kind heart and always wanted to make people laugh, he was the life of the party! I will forever miss you, my friend! ❤️
