You were an easy person to love, who will ever be remembered with love. You, Travis, and Carl had so much fun together as little boys, all the way up to your teenage years. It was always a pleasure seeing you as an adult, although we didn't get to very often. You were honest and humorous, with much care and kindness for your family members. I'm glad you were my nephew.

Joey you will be terribly missed. Your Big Smile, Your Big Hello's and Your Bear Hugs. I can say...I saved all the broken candlesticks, vases and glasses broken while you and Travis visited or when I Babysat y'all. Those were all just materialistic things. I have such good memories packed away. Each one with it's own story. Rest In Peace, Until We Meet Again.
Love, Aunt Angie

I remember the first time meeting you. You were making jokes, and telling me all kinds of embarrassing stories about Eric. I was in stitches and Eric and I talked all the way home while he elaborated on these stories.
There's so many good times and stories. Like when you worked at Olive garden and gave me an entire bag of mints. You earned that tip!
I will miss you and your humor. I could always count on a good time with you around.

As a kid I would look up to you, Eric, and Travis. Even though I was younger than yall, when I was around i never felt left out. I remember you would have trouble pronouncing my name. You'd say, " hey Nay-no" then Eric or Travis would try to correct you. Lol As we grew older we didn't hang out as much, until we went to high school together. I was fortunate to go to school with a lot of my cousins, you included. I can still hear you say, "Nano... What up cousin!..." every time we'd run into each other. I might not have as many memories with you as most people, I can easily say the ones I have are all good ones. Even though we aren't blood you'll always be considered fam. You grew to be a strong, kind hearted, funny and talented man, who will be severely missed by many. My condolences to all of your fam and loved ones. Rest easy bro.
