Joey will always have a special place in my heart. He was the strongest and bravest person I have ever known. He lived his life to the fullest because his mom (my sister) made sure he did everything he wanted to do! His disability did not keep him from the things he loved including going to Baseball/football games, movies, going to Walmart, eating out, going on a cruise, etc. Now, instead of being on the sidelines, he is right in the middle of it!! Thank you Jesus for his healing. We will alway love you Joey!
