"My sweet Joel, How do i even begin to explain how much my heart hurts. There are no words. You would have been a big 34 and growing into another chapter of your life. Oh how i would have loved to see what that would have been. So now all i have are the memories, very precious ones like today on your birthday and my first moment of seeing you and holding you for the first time. We have had so many great funny times together. Sure we had some tough ones too! But every day you'd put on that beautiful smile and do your best to up build those around you. I have dreams about you often, its euphoric when i see you in my dream. We all miss you so much sweetheart and i love you more than anything in this world. I will hold you in my heart to my last breath...until we meet again by the mercy of God, i know you are in safely resting in His hands....Love, mama <3"

Three years ago today I received the worst phone call you could imagine. My older brother called to tell me that one of my other brothers suffered a gunshot wound to the head and would not survive. My brother Joel died the next day. It was the most difficult and shocking circumstances I've ever faced. Still to this day when I think about it, it's just so traumatic and shocking still. Still have so many questions. Still have so many things I wish I said. So many experiences I wish we could have together. I miss my brother terribly, and the only comfort I have is he is truly in a better place and out of the hellish circumstances he was in. Cherish your loved ones, friends, and everyone and everything in general. Appreciate the current highs and even appreciate the lows. When you think you have it bad, there is someone in worse circumstances who wished they had what you have. Tell these people how you feel, because there may come a time when you wish you had. I am thankful for everything I have. And I appreciate every moment. I couldn't ask for anything more, I am completely content and happy with my life. And that's a great feeling. Hope y'all really take this message to heart and tell someone you love them today."

"I sit around and wonder,
and watch the days go by.
I look at all the pictures,
and ask, why did you have to die?
You've always been there for me,
because you were my best friend,
and I was always there for you
until the very end.
But now it's time to let you go,
your spirit now is free.
Even though you won't really be gone,
because you'll live inside of me.
So when we have to leave you
at your resting place,
I will always remember
your smiling face.
This is hardly a goodbye,
so I won't weep anymore,
now you're in a better place
then you ever were before.
Even though I will miss you,
and I will think about you every day
you will always be my best friend,
and that is how it will stay.
Scott Thomson, Joel's best friend <3"

"My Precious Joel, i can't even think of words to describe the pain in my heart. It has not gotten easier, its harder each day that passes. The pain just gets stronger. Life is so hard to continue on without you. Your brothers are devastated still. Justin seems like you tore a piece of his heart out. We all just miss you so so much. I do know one thing for sure.. God has a plan for you, and you are in His memory. I will keep you safe in my heart, and nobody can take that away from me. God, Joel.. i just wish you were here so we could show you the love we have for you. I'd give my life for one more day with you. Mama misses and loves you my sweetheart.. forever in my heart Joel, <3

"Joel, it pains me so much to write this because it's another reminder that you're no longer with us.   You were the brother I never had.  Over the years your family became mine and mine yours. We had many adventures and memories that will never leave me.  You showed me that it was good to be true to yourself and do so for all to see. Through all the troubles life threw at you, you stayed true. You had a bigger than life personality, an unmeasurable heart for your family and friends, and you always stood up for what you believe in. Because of you I try to be a bigger and better person. You will live on in all the crazy stories I tell my kids and others until we meet again. I miss and love you brother!!"

"Sweet Joel.... The world is truly a sadder place without you.... I miss our daily 2 hour phone conversations about absolutely nothing....your voice still echos in my mind...You always could put a smile on my face when I felt like crying... You were the kind of friend that most could only hope to have and I am a better person for having known you... Rest easy Babe...I know I'll catch up with you again someday <3"
