Nothing in the world could have prepared us for the loss we suffered today. We do not know why Joey was taken from us so early, but we know that he has been welcome to Heaven with open arms by his father who he loved so dearly. Needless to say Joey's mother has been blindsided by this tragedy. Joey did not have insurance and his mother does not have the means to give Joey the burial that he deserves. MaryGrace has given so much to so many of us over the years. Her door was always open. there was always a meal on the table for anyone who happened to stop by. She has been like a mother to so many over the years. Joey was a friend to everyone. He was loved by so many. Whether you were a friend to Joey or if you were one of the countless kids that MaryGrace welcomed into her home, I ask that you please consider donating towards Joey's funeral costs.
