Goodbye to Joey

Thank you for all the prayers sent to Joey and his family, wife Karen and sons, mother Ginger and father Michael. Joey passed away from injuries to severe to sustain life last night. He was to young and no parent should ever have to bury their child. We have prayed for him and you have prayed for him. For that we thank you so very much. We have to know that God has answered our prayers. Joey is with his Papa and Grandma now, and I know they met him and welcomed him home. Now the rest of life continues and we'll all muddle through just as we always have. Thank you for being friends.

I wondered because I didn't have an update this morning. God bless his sweet family and the drs and nurses that worked so hard on him.

I am so saddened to hear of Joey's passing. I know a lot of folks have been praying for a miracle...and sometimes we on earth just don't understand why someone so young and full of life has to be taken from us. I believe that Joey was welcomed by God's embrace and that he suffers no more...I know too well, how his family will have to continue on without him and how devastating that can be. I offer up prayers for all of you and that your faith and love for the Lord and one another can sustain you during your grief.

If you need anything...I'm an email away!

Oh no Sandi...when no update came in last night I feared but continued to pray. My heart hurts so for you all but dear sweet Karen and the boys...she was so constant and so loving. I have no words except to say that I send my love and hugs and heart.

My prayers will continue for you all now..

I just wanted to say how sorry I am to hear about Joey. I heard through Kathy's blog. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers.

Our only hope in this life is to know Christ. Times like these come to all of us, and He is there to carry us through. May God be with all of you during the coming days.
