Dear Aunt Dotty and FamilyMy thoughts and prayers are with you. All that I could think when I got the news that Joey had passed was what a great guy that Joey was. He will stay that way in my heart as I know he will in yours. As the days go by, I hope that you will find comfort in your time spent together to ease the time apart.Love,Tom

The first time I met "Plum" was when Paul and I got married in 2003. He drove from Houston to stand by Paul's side. That meant the world to both of us. He quicky became one of my closest friends. We shared a love of dry humor and he kept me in stitches, to say the least. My favorite pass time was listening to him and Paul talk about their childhoods. I'm glad I got to spend so much time with him before he went to live with Jesus. The Lord opened up doors for me to get a glimpse of Joey s heart before he died. It was beautiful. I miss him terribly but I know he's with his first love, Jesus. I'll see you again, Joey. Love you, my friend. ~kelli~I first time I met Joey was in the 9th grade English class with Mrs Mckee. He sat behind me in class. That was the beginning of everything. He always called me "boy." He was a man of his word. He was my best friend since 9th grade. His last week's here on earth, he spent at my house a lot. We recanted a lot of memories. One night while at my house, I heard talking. I got up to go see what was going on. When I got to his room, he had his hands in the air and was laughing and talking to Jesus. I quickly left as to not disturb him. I thank God for that memory. His relationship with Jesus was very real. He loved Him and I'm confident he is with Jesus right now. We will meet again, boy. Take care, my friend. ~Paul~

Joe and I went to High School together in the mid-70's. We were both on the tennis team (he's was ranked 1st and I was 9th). We spent afternoons together sometimes after school and would talk about deep subjects. He was alway a very thoughful person. When my family moved away from Ruston in my junior year, I lost track of Joey for several decades. Then, just through a search on the web, I found him! My friend and buddy from so long ago. I insisted that we make plans together - our whole families together. And we did. We went to the Miller Outdoor Theater in Hermann Park (in Houston) and we brought food and drink and our little girls were running around the grassy mound. And we had a blast! It seem we got together a couple of more times. He and Sharon cooked dinner for us at their house in Houston. I even invited him to comes play with my guitar buddies and he did. And he enjoyed it immensely. We kind of drifted apart after his divorse. I visited him at the house he rented a room in and we took a ride in his "divorsemobile". I sure loved Joey very much. And we talked not more than a month ago. He was asking if I had any connections in the Houston area. He said he'd move back in a second, if he had the chance. I sure would like to speak with someone about his passing. It's hit me like a ton of lead on my heart and I need to talk to somebody about it. My cell # of 832-651-3342. Joe's memory preoccupies my heart and my mind right now. It would help you and me both if you would call me sometime. All of my prayers go out to Joe's family. I'm not worried about him. He was very faithful to God and I know that he had no pain now. It's us left filled with it. But as we try to cope with what's happened, we have to be reassured that he's in God's hands now and we are left to deal with it. I'm trying to lift my heart up.Love,Scott McNeill4910 Bayfair St.Pasadena, TX 77505

Our family sends love and prayers for Joe and his family. I remember happy times from our childhood attending family reunions in Louisiana and I too recall Joe's love of music.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I first met Joey in the 7th grade at Glen View when it was the Junior High. He was a good guy with a great sense of humor. I haven't seen him in many years, yet I still considered him my friend. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

I first met Joey when I joined the sixth grade at AE Phillips. We spent many hours listening to Beatles records and even more hours on the tennis courts, where he thrashed me repeatedly. I have nothing but fond memories of Joey, the skinny kid in the beat-up sneakers with the unorthodox serve who whipped the fancy tennis boys from Shreveport and Monroe. I'll be thinking of his dry sense of humor, his compassion for others, and the good times we shared in high school. He will always have a special place in my heart.
