Tell Us About Them:
Joe was always caring and would've given the shirt off your back.
Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:
He struggled with addiction since he was 13 he came from a family of alcoholics and drug addiction. He was in and out of jails since he was 16. He died in the system. He would always keep in touch with me whenever he got released from prison but this last time he called and confided in me that he has been using herion and was injecting it. I walked the same road as him and tried to help and once I mentioned helping him he avoided me. Its sad that his biological father died because of drugs and so did the man that raised him who he called dad. Nor to mention an uncle and many good friends. It just goes to show you that you can't be scared into recovery only when that person us ready will they finally surrender.
What Made Them Smile?
Building cars and riding motorcycles and his children and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Not to mention the many women he was with. Not saying this in a bad way but joe had 1 girl for every day of the week and 2 for the week end.
What Do You Miss the Most About Them?
His smile . how he could make you smile by acting silly. We grew up in the same house so we were more like brother and sister than cousins
If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?
That I love him and everyone misses him and why didn't you call someone & I'm not mad at him
