Our love and prayers of comfort go to our family in distant Oregon. We loved our cousin Joey. THAT SMILE warmed the world. The laugh that could cheer any day up. Always cousin in our thoughts even when we were apart, looking forward to the next time we all see eachother again. Tears flowed as I cried upon hearing of our loss. We are all so close, I knew last week something was wrong and kept waiting for the call, knowing the loss was going to be great, but not knowing from where it was to come. I will miss our cousin, always good for a heart warming greeting, a hug, a smile and a "good to see you". Our family has always meant everything to us, we grew up together, every weekend we were in Bishop, CA., the summers running through the pastures and cooling off in the the ditches. Many fun memories were earned and cherished. With much love Shelly
