    I am truly sorry for what you all are going through. I can honestly say that I am very blessed and thankful to have met and had Joey as one of my best friends growing up at Hortonville. Such a fun and loving kid to be around, I just wish I would had the opportunity to reconnect with him since he had left. I’ll always remember him and the goofy times we had together, Rest In Peace, I love you Joey!
