(How do I say these next words? I know they must be said, I just don't know how to do it. I can't believe they're true.) My cousin, Joey, passed away last evening. His body was just too injured to recover. I know that Joey has moved on to the next phase and is with God now. I'll miss him and all the opportunities we'll never get back. My thoughts are with Karen, Keaton and Carson and Aunt Ginger, Joey's mother. Their loss is heartbreaking and I ache for how terribly sad they are. I want to thank all of you who prayed for them and who thought of them over the past couple of weeks. To know people like you is a privilege. I will be forever thankful and warmed by the kindness and compassion all of you have shown.
I'm waiting to hear what the arrangements will be, but I'm figuring on leaving here tomorrow or the next day for Mobile. Therefore, I don't expect to be posting anything for awhile. Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers for Joey.
