    My heart hurts right now. My head is in denial. I’ll share a loved memory of your selflessness. My mother had gotten costumes for Halloween and brother said he wasn’t going to wear that and you stepped up and was my Raggedy Andy I was Ann.
    Love and miss you.

    I met Joel several years ago. Over the years we had become very good friends. I am deeply saddened by his passing. He was one of the kindest and most caring people I ever knew. I miss him deeply. Rest in peace my good friend.

    I am not so sorry to hear of Joel’s passing . I went to school with Joel and even now, we would stop and visit. He was never to busy to stop and say hello to someone. He had a heart of gold. R.I.P. JOEL.
