This is a very special way to remember Joey. All of the wonderful moments were captured beautifully in picture and song. After viewing all the pages, I feel as if I have actually met him. Terrie, I know Joey is very proud of this tribute and I am very proud of you for doing it.
Your friend for a lifetime....Lorraine...........

Terri - this is such a beautiful memorial for your precious and handsome son ~JOEY~. The pictures say
a thousand words. He certainly lived his life to
the fullest and was so very blessed with loving family
and friends. The music and pictures brought so many
tears. I'm so sorry for your sadness. I am sure
our boys have met up in Heaven ~ just as their Moms
did on earth. Blessings my friend.

Terrie; what a beautiful memorial for your Joey...I enjoyed every bit of it. The music you chose was wonderful (I noticed you used the beautiful dove too!).

Thanks so much for sharing your Joey. I just know our boys are together in heaven, and smiling down on us.

Terrie, Your love for Joey shines throughout this memorial for him, in every phrase and in every picture. That boy had such a headful of beautiful curls as a youngster! I, too, belong to the GP group and am just very quiet much of the time, but I simply needed to tell you that this memorial does what a parent's job and pleasure should be in circumstance of joy or grief -- to love and to respect and to remember.

It is GREAT! I loved looking at Joey's school pictures and seeing his personality develop. He is such a handsome guy and his smile is so contagious. He made me smile with him.

I can see why he misses the holidays with you. I know he is with you each day. As I know each and everyday of his new life is filled with joy and love from his family.

Hugs to you for your hard work with his site and I know he is proud of him loving Mom.

Thank you for the honor of visiting with your handsome son and sharing his life. This is an amazing tribute to an amazing young man. My heart, prayers, love, and blessings are with you! Thank you again for the treasures you have shared.

Your web site for Joey was definitely worth waiting for, it's beautiful! It is so organized, very easy to navigate through and I love how it is laid out. What a wonderful tribute to your handsome son Joey.

I loved seeing how he changed from year to year through the pictures. I could feel your love for Joey as I went through the pages. I am sure that Joey is so proud of his awesome mom!!

I loved all your poems, you are very good with poetry! That's a talent that I definitely do not have! This website is a wonderful place that you can now use as your daily journal to Joey as I use the MeM site to write to Corey and Michelle.

I so hope that your Joey has met and become good friends in heaven with my son Corey and daughter in-law Michelle, just as we have here on earth!

I enjoyed looking through the photos you have here, showing Joey and your family. He was clearly a much-loved son. Thank you for sharing your handsome Joey with us.

My heart goes out to you, as I know that the pain runs deep.

Love and peace,
Karyl, mother of Arlyn

Joey must be looking down from Heaven with big smiles of pride for his Mom!! You've done a beautiful job on his memorial, I felt as though I got to know your precious son from birth through your eyes and memories.

Terrie: What a beautiful, heartfelt outpouring of your love. I viewed the memorial on Easter, and what a fitting day to do so, when we are all assured that we will rise again and that death has no more power over us. I know that Joey is with you always and pray that you find peace in knowing that he has never left any of us. I have seen you grow into a person of such strength and courage, helping others with your love, and I am very proud to call you my friend.

My Dear Sweet Angel,

I see you up in heaven on this Easter Day, I'm so glad
you are at peace. This will be the first of many times
I will be writing to you, to let you know how much we love
and miss you.

Dear Mom and Dad,

I have been trying to get a message to you and my new friend, Samantha, suggested that I do it through her Dad. “Oh yeah,” Samantha is a friend up here with me. She was only twenty. We both were assigned important jobs as guardians for our families.

The first thing you should know is that I am OK. So many things that we thought were important like time and money are of no concern here. Also bad things like illnesses, depression, accidents, war, complications of life, which can all be put in one category - the struggles of life, are not here. The only thing that you take with you is the love. It turns out that God is far more loving and forgiving than anyone thought. There are so many here that others said could not come here. Also, don’t let anyone tell you that, “It was God’s will“.

I need your help so that I can help you and our family. I need you to accept my last day as the saddest day of your life. This is important because it opens the possibility that each day thereafter will be a little less sad.

I need you to understand that I will always be with you in your heart and in your thoughts. My spirit is within you, our family, and my friends. And a part of me will always be living through them. When our family comes together, you will surely feel my presence and spirit.

I am sorry that I left you my stuff to deal with. When you are ready, put it into two piles - one for my treasures and the other for everything else. Cherish my treasures. I hope you will find comfort and solace in my gifts to you. Everything else should be given to someone who can use them. I won’t be needing them. I hope my treasures will, in time, will bring a smile to your face and not a tear. If a tear should fall, let it be a refreshing tear or two of love and not a downpour of sadness and sorrow.

My life has meaning. I have an understanding of life and a concern for life far greater than most. And my time with you, my family, and my friends is defined as my lifetime. Remember that without you both, I would not have even one day of life. Don’t dwell on the circumstances that ended my life. You did your best and the rest was out of your hands.

Dwell on the good times that we had as a family. Remember me often. Do good things in my name. Find a place that we can talk, my room, a tree that you planted in my honor, make it a place that you enjoy. Talk to me and know that I am listening. Let me intercede in your behalf. I can help with having your prayers answered far greater here than I could when I was with you. Remember that I am walking and talking face to face with our Lord. Ask me to help you and I will.

Don’t ask questions that can not be answered. Questions like “Why did this happen to me? Why did it happen to our family? Why can’t I be with you now?“. If you need an answer to a question that can be answered, think about what I would have wanted. The answer will become clear. Don’t rush your life to get here and be with me. Life is short but not here, its infinite. I will be waiting for you, no need to rush. When the time comes, I will meet you at the gates of heaven - “Make Me Proud, Make Me Happy“! Know that when you are able to smile once again, I will be smiling with you.

I will be stopping by for a visit from time to time. Not always as direct as this but maybe in a song, a conversation, a place that we would like, a mystery jolt that prevents you from having an accident, a dream, a blossom that appears suddenly, a rainbow, a shooting star, ... Keep your heart and mind open to these visits.

And finally, you need to know that I love you and I miss you too. There is only one thing more tragic than me no longer being with you and that would be if you missed the rest of your life because of what happened to me.
Sent with all my love!
