I love you all so much. Joseph will be missed forever and loved for always. The lives he touched will be engraved with his spirit. The strength and love he'd shown to all was enough to last a life time. Our children will know of what a great man here was.

Sending my condolences and prayers for his family. We may not have had too many cherished moments together, but the chances we got were more than enough to last me a lifetime. I will miss how funny you were and the jokes you told (especially the ones you had to explain to me) I know you will be watching over everyone in heaven... Save a spot for me. *air hugs*

Gone from your family way too soon, but Gods word says "we do not grieve as those who have no hope". He gives us the promise of a great family reunion someday when all sorrow and pain is finally healed.

My big brother, I love you. No one understands me like you do. We'll have a lot to catch up on. I miss you already. I enjoyed our talks, our laughs and our tears. I hate that you're gone, but never from my heart, I am picking up the pieces that shattered apart. I love you my big brother. Very very much.

My bro Joe, always so thoughtful of everyone you came across, had an inner bright light that lit up a room when you'd enter. I will always remember our crazy times we shared, you were a humorous go-getter, let's try this or that because we only live once you said. Like the time you just called me up and said let's take trip to Homer sis. That was an unforgettable trip and you made an adventure of it even though you chose to stay while our ride left. You loved your son David so much and he loves you. I will always miss you, there will never be a day I won't think of you. Give Mom big hugs for me. I love you Brofuss. My kids love you too. Your sis, your bro Bernard, Xavier, Aaliyah, Alex and Alyinae.

Joesph, you're very missed and loved so dearly. I'm going to miss seeing you around. Those funny and uplifting messages. Every time we hung out was awesome because you had this amazing sense of humor and the most contagious laugh ever. God needed his angel but way to soon. Missing you buddy. Rest In Paradise. <3

Joe, my bro, always thoughtful of others, I'll never forget our crazy times Brofuss. Watching football with you, going on road trips just because, especially the Homer trip where on the way there I was about to be left on Kalifornsky Rd. And you said, "no way I ain't leaving my sister out here in the middle of nowhere, I'll stay with my Sis." I know you chose to stay back in Homer for longer after we left the next day, and you made it an adventure out of it, hiking back, took you two days and seeing black bears on the highway, you were proud to tell me that story because you knew me and bears. You always were just a go-getter, let's do this, you only live once type of person. I love you my brother! I will always miss you and there will never be a day I won't think of you. Rest in paradise, with the rest of our beloved. Your sis Marion

Joseph! I can sit here and just laugh at all the conversations we use to have! Memories, the only thing I have is memories! Precious memories! Memories I will not ever forget! You knew how to make any situation into a game kinda like, and you knew the answers to slove it. That smile, who can ever forget that contagious smile? Oh that laugh that came with that contagious smile! Seahawks games will not ever be the same with you not here screaming, yelling, jumping, high-fiveing, and rooting on the Seahawks! But our memories will always be here! #HawkNation! May you Rest In Paradise my cousin! I will miss you so! Love you long time!
Love Auntie Mary, cousin Patty, and Dominiq! <3

Joseph I know your time with us seemed to be not long enough however our Lord was ready for you therefore may you begin your journey to the heavens to be with Jesus, your mom and grandparents...I love you miss you and won't forget your sincere, positive and happy outlook on life. May God place His comforting hand on your son David, step son Kanye, your dad Kevin, your siblings and nieces & nephews to overcome this loss and know His promise that you'll be awaiting them.
