Jeni and Donna I am so sorry!!! Words don't even begin to help, just know I have been thinking about you both. Jeni I worked with Donna at DFCS. You all have been in my thoughts since I heard the news. There is nothing you can do but hold on to God. I surely wish words could help, but alas God is the healer of hearts and souls.

Mike and Family,
I read in our Stockbridge paper about Joey's death and it had Sr. I was confused but when I pulled up the notice I knew who it was.
I am so very sorry about your son and my memory takes me and my precious Mother back to our visit to see Uncle Clarence and Aunt Mary.
My Mother passed away April 21,2013. It has been a lonely year.She was going on 102 on next birthday, so we had her for a long blessed time.
I really am glad to know that Joey had such a wonderful family as you both are, and being a second cousin to all the young men of the family, I am happy to be a part of them.
Just wanted to let you all know that we will be saying prayers for all and that I love you all.
Sylvia and Richard and son Christopher and Family
