And here's a picture of Joey looking somewhat less than thrilled. That little chin looks so stubborn (that's because it is stubborn, but I don't want to be telling tales out of school so won't say anymore about that!).
And here's another picture of Joey looking thrill-less. Typical boy, eh?
Now here's Joey (on the left) with 2 of his childhood friends. These boys were always together, all the time. You gotta love their tuxedos, huh? They. Were. Stylin'!
Now this picture is just pure "Joey". Big smile, sparkle in his eyes, and probably a smart comment coming out of that mouth!
I can't thank you guys enough for all the prayers and good thoughts you've sent to Joey and Karen and their boys. I'm so very humbled to know you all. The way you have responded to them has left me in awe of your kind hearts and generous spirits. Many of you have opted to receive the daily updates from Joey's website so you already know of the great progress he has made from where this ordeal began. Joey has an amazing will to live and Karen is, quite simply, a tower of strength for him. I hope and pray that she takes care of herself because her presence is so obviously needed to bring Joey back to health. Her faith in God and her belief in Joey's spirit are an unbeatable combination!
Thanks again you wonderful, wonderful people for sending your prayers and for thinking of Joey, Karen and the boys during this time. I know they have a long, long road ahead of them but when so many people are pulling together and expressing their love, I firmly believe it must surely help to ease the burden and the pain, at least a little bit.
