As a teacher, Joey was one of my favorites! He was always so kind and courteous, and I looked forward to working with him each school day. He had a real sense of humor, too. He came with his step-dad one day to visit my husband...we were eating, and I had made something with rice that I had never made before. It was terrible! Joey tasted it and really enjoyed teasing me about it! I truly loved him!

Joey was a happy joyful person that always greeted me with a smile and kind word. From hanging out around the neighborhood to playing baseball together was always fun.
