These are Kevin's brothers, and Joey became the seventh brother. (Mark is missing here).These guys could play Risk all night long and for days running; Melissa also let them play Nerfball wars INSIDE her house. They loved Melissa.
Joey gathered friends like the rest of us gather shoes. But the old, comfy ones with a bit of dirt on them were his favorites. And he liked having them nearby so he could slip them on spontaneously, without much effort. He traveled miles with those good, sturdy friends and they were there to say goodbye to him at the end of his journey. They are the best kind of friends and we love them all.
Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
