    Oh my heart grieves so much for the family of Joseph. I knew him from living in Wilmington at the time. He was so smart but always very polite and helpful and he loved my grandsons. He definitely was taken to soon from his family but there was no love for him like his momma had for him. When I think of Joseph, I smile. He had that certain charm about him. I can see that in the picture with his brother. My deepest sympathy to all the family. May he RIP and enjoy flying with the other angels <3

    Joseph will be missed for his outgoing personality. When Shana moved to Carolina Beach, Joseph was one of her first new friends and she talked of him often. She loved Joseph, but, didn't everyone!

    If i'd known it would be the last time I saw him, i'd have made sure he knew how much I love him. Even now I still miss him so much. I just can't believe he's really gone. He was my best friend.
