I don't intend to write a sad blog, but our loss is still fresh and there are memories of Joey everywhere. He is still a part of us and we want his story to endure. During Joey's college years, his summer job was working for Trilogy Excursions on Maui. His job was sailing eager tourists to dazzling snorkel spots around the islands, and coaching them into the water with mask and fins. He fed them, humored them, and protected them from harm. Here he is one day when he was 20 years old, posing with his dad---gotta love those radiant smiles.
Goodbye to that sweet time, goodbye sweet Maui life, goodbye sweet beautiful son---Aloha till we meet again on Another Shore. Till then we will love you and remember you, and trust that God has a plan to bring good out of tragedy.
