Joey's second anniversary, 1-4-10

We lost Joey 2 years ago today. He had ALS, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. His symptoms began when his was 28 and he was finally diagnosed February 4, 2004. He was 33 years old when he died. It was agonizing to watch him go from being a strong, athletic, hard working young man to someone who could not walk, talk or move without help. He never complained. We cared for him and we knew he was dying, yet when it happened we were shocked. He just stopped breathing. This nightmare started 7 years ago. I keep thinking I'll wake up and it will be ok... But the dream is real and it will never be ok. I pray for inner peace but right now I just feel broken. I love you Joe; I miss you.

Six years ago yesterday Joey was diagnosed and now he's been gone for two years. So young... I still cry all of the time. We miss you Joe... I long to see you again. Until that time you're forever in our hearts, our thoughts, our prayers... I love you Joe.

Hi Diane,
Yes we do have alot in common. How are you doing after the 2 yr anniv? Have you gotten any peace ?
We will never forget the memories, or pictures of the
boys in our minds, however something just happened
on Jan. 9 this year and I've been so at peace since
then. I asked that God give me the strength to continue life without Rich and it happened. So many things that I have prayed for are happening. Sometimes it's kind of scary. My belief in The Lord
is stronger than it ever has been since Rich is gone.
I know he is watching over me and wants me to go
on and be happy. He knows that someday we will be
together. If you like write and tell me how your
rollercoaster ride was for you and how you're doing now. Thanks Hugs, A new friend. Janie

Hi Diane, I just wanted to tell you that I was thinking about you and your Joey, What a handsome guy... I know all the feeling you are having oh so well. I wish like I wish with all of the parents on here that I could just grab you and hug you. Just know that you are in my thoughts and I will say a prayer for your Joey.
