Words alone cannot explain the pain and sorrow I am feeling for you Joel we had our ups and downs but mostly our ups but you were like a brother from another mother to me, you were always there for me when I was feeling down or depressed you always cheered me up, we had our little falling out but like brothers that happens I remember how you always use to say you wanted to get back down with me and it hurts me so much we didn't get to do that.
My heart and condolences go out to your family and friends we all loved you. This isn't good bye
It's more like until we meet again brother
Save me a cloud and when I make it to heaven I'll be by your side again. 😞😢💔
