Dear Family,
My deepest sympathy goes out to you as you endure the loss of your son. May the God of all comfort be with you and your family,The scripture found at 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 reassures us that God is always with us when we are going through trials and we can rely on him to give us the strength we need to get through hard times such as this one. I also want to share some hope and Joy from the scripture found at Acts 24:15,where this shows us that soon we will be reunited with our loved ones again in the resurrection. I hope knowing this brings you some peace and comfort during your time of grief.

Growing up with you was so much fun. You and Jonathan were the little brothers I never had. I loved that you used to follow me around and I loved that I was your Kally. Even when you grew up, I still wasn't Kelly, I was your Kally. You were always "my twin" and I loved your little hugs which turned into big hugs as you got older. You were such a sweet, gentle soul. Jay loved you so much, you were always so sweet and gentle with her and let her climb all over you. If I didn't see Jay running around the house it was because you were holding her and playing with her. We'll miss you greatly. We love you.

I am truly sorry to learn of the passing of Joseph. He would often stop into my office and say with a smile Hey Ms.Johnson you got a sec I want run something by you. With his opening alone I would often respond in a way that caused us both too laugh ok a second but after that the meter starts running. And he would respond back" ok but it's going to be in change" causing me to respond back " that's ok your credit is 100% fine with me." Condolences to the Haynes family Father, Mother, Stepmother, Brother, Sister relatives he loved you all deeply often talking of his nephew and spending time together. Ms. Amy Johnson

Hey cousin,
Growing up I remember going to y'alls house and Holly would say "this is grown up talk go play with the other kids" I'd get so mad, but you and Jonathan would show me all the cool stuff in your room and tell me how you were saving money to by a play station and games. I remember all of us going trick or treating and filling pillow cases full of candy. Man I sure am going to miss your smiling face when go to Aunt Holly's house and you say hey Sabrina and give me a huge hug! I love you!

I found out Sunday night that you were no longer in this place with us. Like most when they heard the news, i just couldn’t believe it. Holly and I spoke maybe a week ago of everyone in the family, catching up.
We spent so much time together as kids.
It was summer camps, boy scout meetings or camping, hanging out while our dads talked, video games, or shooting hoops.
To the Haynes family and anyone else trying to bare this sadness, you’re all in my prayers. Stick together as a family and help each other through. Cry together, pray together, and you’ll find peace together.
Joseph, you will forever be missed. Thanks for the memories you made with me.

First let me say my thoughts and prayers are with The Haynes Family. I have tried to add a poem I found only to help them know this I promise as God tells us is only a season. I could never EVER tell Joseph or Jonathan apart do they became my “J” kids. I pray that your family will soon fine peace and closure. May God wrap his loving arms around each of you . Dee


      Many things can be said about Joseph Michael Haynes. Known to friends and acquaintances as a friendly, energetic, empathic and decisive man, his compassionate nature would always shine through, revealing his charm, warmth and conscientious demeanor. He was warmhearted, gentle and organized in all the things he sought to accomplish. Joseph was a mentor, a natural “teacher” capable of seeing things clearly, leading others and bringing out the best in all of those around him. He generally had a focus on harmony and peace.

       His parents were Grant Haynes and Holly Haynes. Joseph was raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina. When he was young, Joseph's friends and family found that “straightforward” and “honest” were perfect words to describe him. Even as a child, Joseph demonstrated strong qualities of self-confidence, perceptive ability and a disposition that was enjoyable to those around him.

      Joseph grew up with two siblings. He had a twin brother, Jonathan and one sister Angela. Joseph was constantly involved in all sorts of activities with his family. He was even-tempered, taking care not to get involved in too many family conflicts. This quality served him well, in perpetually bringing harmony, understanding and a sense of peace to the family. Joseph carried these traits into his adult life and served as one of many reasons why family and friends found him pleasurable and delightful to be around. Joseph was a person who genuinely understood and cared for others, making powerful connections with those he knew.

      As a young boy, Joseph was imaginative, ingenious, clever and a “novel” thinker. Regardless of whether his peers were older or younger, or came from different backgrounds, Joseph could easily relate to other kids. He was an active child who took part in basketball. He was a scout. In his spare time he liked to listen to music. Joseph's memorable achievements included. However, to Joseph, the most fun to be had was simply playing and spending time with his many friends.

      Always considered a “good” friend, Joseph sought to understand the things that others enjoyed. For this reason Joseph always seemed to possess a never-ending collection of acquaintances. Joseph’s friends found him easy to know and get along with because of his talent for being socially at ease, adept at conversation, and always amiable in his dealings with others. Joseph would always seek to learn what his friends enjoyed, and he would go out of his way to make sure that their needs were met. Joseph was always seen as the type of person who was the more gracious giver. In fact, he sometimes felt ill at ease when he was the one on the receiving end. Throughout his life he had many friends. While growing up, his best friend was his brother Jonathan.

      Because he was organized and methodical, Joseph took great pleasure in his various hobbies. His favorite pursuits were video games, music and eating at McDonalds and Golden Corral. Joseph enjoyed sharing his passions with others and could singularly focus on one hobby at a time.

      Though he never did anything solely for individual recognition, Joseph was given accolades for his many and varied efforts throughout his life. If the truth were known, Joseph was always a little uncomfortable with being singled out for recognition. Some of his most prestigious awards included those received from Boy Scouts and basketball.

      Joseph enjoyed traveling, and because he was so well organized, he would take on the responsibility of planning and scheduling all of the family vacations. His gift for keeping things lively meant that vacations with Joseph were always enjoyable. Favorite vacations included fishing, boating and camping.

      Joseph was a lover of animals and cherished his pets. Joseph's favorites were Marley and Evie. They were best friends for five years.

       He is survived by sister, Angela and twin brother Jonathan. Services were held at Reeves Funeral Home Chapel in Hope Mills, North Carolina.

      Throughout his life, Joseph was a gregarious and enthusiastic man. He was generous in sharing his personal attributes, giving and helping those he knew and loved. He would often fill the role of coach, bringing out the best in everyone. He was imaginative, original, tender hearted and easy to get along with. Joseph leaves behind him a legacy of life-long friendships and cherished memories. Everyone whose lives he touched will dearly remember Joseph Michael Haynes.
