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.
