Today I was very saddened to hear about Joey's passing. As a Caverna compatriot we crossed paths frequently. Joey's contagious smile is what I remember most about our friendship. God rest Joey's soul and may the Lord's blessings and compassion be upon Marsha, Cynthia & the rest of Joey's family.

Broke down right in front of his house once, helped me work on my truck, gave me a ride into town and fixed me up with a wrecker. When I was a kid, he helped me work on my motorcycle once too. A real class act, Rest in Peace Joe, Kelly Rose
