My dear Annie,
Where do we begin? Bruce,Tyler and I are both shocked and saddened to hear of Joey's death. He was an amazing young man who lived life as it should be lived. He always had a smile and a good word no matter what was going on in his life. Such a gem. Our love and prayers are with you Annie at such a very difficult time. I bet him and Les had quite a reunion.

I had the pleasure of working with Joe for about 5 years now. He always came in and asked how I was doing, and I would return the question to him.. his response was always "living the dream" to which I would say "more like a nightmare ". Qe both would laugh and start on another subject such as racing or fishing. Going to miss his hellos and his humor. Rest easy Joe and live your dreams now. Miss ya
