"My sincere condolences to Joey's family and to Linda Rowe, Joey's sister. Although I have not seen Joey in many years, I remember him as such a sweet, KIND person. Christ's birthday was celebrated at Aunt Annie's home and our dad's would assemble the train set in the kitchen because there were so many gifts and paper all around the tree in the living room. What fun, and grandma would make those fabulous rolls. Sweet memories. Rest assured that Joey is with our Lord in one of His many mansions. Such a nice man gone too soon. Sincerely, Roseanne "
