I remember your smile at the door, always welcoming me in. At some of the lowest points of my life.
I was always so impressed with how you seemingly floated through life without a complaint. Without a bad habit. Without hate.
You were so much younger than me, but every time we said goodbye, I left with a bigger responsibility to be kinder to the world. No matter how cruel it could be. Now you have gone to that better place. But I won’t say goodbye. Because you are still here with all of us, in the air and in our hearts. I just dropped in to say thank you for being a part of my life.
It was such an honor being a part of yours. See ya at the door Jojo.

Peace, blessings, and condolences to the entire family. Joe was one of my 1st friends from elementary through high school. Joe was always full of life and love. He actually taught me how to play basketball. I pray the family finds peace during this time. Love.

I would like to give my deepest condolences to the family and his children. I have known him since he was a teenager being a friend of his mother. He was always so sweet and respectful, such a beautiful soul. I will continue to lift the family up through prayer!!! This was such heartbreaking to hear. May God bless you all & give you strength during this time .
Love Jasmine, & The Alford Family.

For the short time I got to be around JoJo I learned that he was full of life, loves his family like crazy, and seem to enjoy life as if it would be his last day on earth. I enjoyed hanging out with him. I can tell he will be a missed soul on this earth. Rest in Heaven JoJo. To the family I send my prayers and prayer for strength, peace, and to be surrounded by love from the heavens and earth.

Words cannot express the sadness of my heart at this moment in time over the senseless cause of death of "Joe". May your memory bring forth peace to those that love you. My ❤ is heavy though I know God will grant peace to those you've left behind here on earth. You will never be forgotten Lil Joe. Ive sent to you a going away gift that only you'd know the true meaning behind. Take your rest in the presence of the almighty God. Grace and Peace be with you.

Joe always had a smile for everyone and a beautiful soul. Over the years I’ve been distant given the situation but the love I have for each and every one of you has never faded. I honestly view all of you as a second family and y’all have never shown me otherwise.

The last time I saw him he was picking up Lil ant from my house and he yelled what’s up and told me he was going to grow his hair back so I could braid it... we both knew he was joking so we laughed and said our good byes but he was just that type of person to make anyone smile, laugh, and love him.

With all the love in the world, DD.
