Not a day goes by that we don’t miss you!

Joey had a personality like I’d never seen before, never shy, or embarrassed to do something goofy! He would give his last dollar to a stranger if they needed it. Joey had struggled with addiction for many years, in and out of jail, rehabs never seem to last. Joey lost his battle June 30th 2023. I’ll never forget that day when the detectives knocked on the door! We have a 3 year old daughter who misses her daddy more than anything and she doesn’t understand why daddy isn’t here! I see Joey every time I look at her! Fly high Joey know that we miss you so much and we live you even more! Please watch over us and one day we will see you again!
