His beautiful spirit lives on...

My beautiful boy was full of LIFE, LOVE, JOY and CREATIVITY. His gentle smile and charismatic personality drew people to him like a magnet. Always rooting for the underdog, Joseph never liked to see people treated unjustly, nor bullied. He didn’t see your outward beauty, but your inner beauty. His group of friends come in all ages, shapes, sizes and colors. A testament to his ability to see beyond the flesh, but to see the soul of others, and they are all wonderful people. As a mother, that one characteristic makes me the most proud. I often referred to him as my unicorn. I knew how wonderfully special he was and felt that way in his presence. Joseph’s beautiful spirit lives on through the gifts he has donated, and I hope those recipients sprinkle a bit of his magic to others as they live their lives.

    Son, You have been the shinning light in my life. You’ve been an inspiration for me with your courage, bravery and love. Everything you did, you did with a full heart. Now, you’ll continue to help so many people fulfill their dreams and goals. You will always live on in this world, spreading your positivity and love forever. I can’t wait to see you again, I love you always and forever Son. You know this is my favorite picture of us. Watching you run on the beach with your cousin and enjoying the ocean always puts a smile on my face. Knots-Scary Farm was an awesome time for you and although I won’t attend this year, know that we’ll plan for next year. I Love you Always and Forever Son ♾❤️♾❤️♾❤️♾

    Took this picture right after I talked to you. Daddy and I were in NYC and we had just left the Guggenheim. You couldn’t wait to visit with us again. I remember how certain you were that you would love New York and the energetic vibe here. ❤️‍🩹🥺

    I remember the clavado you did and how fearless you were but how terrified I was.

      Awww Nina! That's such a great shot of mijo! The look on his face says it all!! Exhilaration and fearlessness is what this photo has captured. Thank you for sharing. xoxoxo

    Ay papito, I saw you in the video of your 19th birthday party the other day and it brought me to tears seeing you and hearing your voice with such happiness on getting the ipod from uncle Fern. The sadness all comes back every time I see a memory of you but I know that you are an angel still doing your magic here. You befriended the underdog and I really feel that you are still helping those in need maybe by sending them signs, whether it's a ray of sunshine or a mere suggestion giving them hope. Maybe that's why your grandpa left when he did, to be there when you arrived. Joseph, your are an angel and you did great things and I know that you are still doing great things. I love you and miss you. Rest up beautiful boy. Your auntie MAC

      Nina, I can't tell you how many times I watch that video. Sending big hugs, love you very much.

    Good morning my beautiful boy. Sunny today. A cool 64 degrees, but sunny. Thinking of how the sun is kissing your face and missing you 😔 so very much.

    Teaching you to make brownies and you so attentive! I miss you like the dickens! God bless you ! I love you my beautiful boy.

    • September 16th, 2022 | Jojo’s Mom |

      I remember this! We had fun baking and Joseph had fun learning but mostly eating all the goodies after. He's looking at you so attentively xoxoxo.

    Hi my Love. End of the day and I'm listening to Christmas music. I know, I know. But it's jazzy so....not like full on Bing Crosby. You always thought that jazz music reminded you of Christmas, me too! I remember when we laughed about that. Miss you, love you so very much!!

    Jojo, Thank you for joining me at the Duran Duran Concert. I definitely felt your presence. I had the best time with you there along side me singing to "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Save A Prayer". Until next time my Angel! Although you are gone, you will never be forgotten!!! Love you, Auntie Jess

    Hi Baby! Good morning! Woke up this morning to 64 degrees, can you believe it!? Buster will need his sweater soon but it's a welcome break from last weeks heatwave. Stores are starting to stock apple cyder, your favorite. I would buy that by the gallon so you could always have some and get the fall-feels even in AZ. I'll pick some up over the weekend for us. Miss you and love you like crazy by baby boy!! xoxoxo

    Dear Joseph, I make it a point to seize each day, hearing your voice and sensing your smile as I close my eyes in remembrance. I also know that you live on in all of our hearts and forever in our souls. Fortunately, I have many memories and look upon you often in photo memories. Thank you, mijo, for blessing me with your love and I miss you with all my heart. With love, always, Uncle Fernie ❤️

    It’ll never make sense. I still don’t know the right words to say to your parents, grandma and auntie because it’s hard to grasp that you’re gone. I’m reminded that the brightest stars often burn out the fastest. You’re spirit… it was the brightest. We all felt it and saw it. Sweet boy, you will forever be missed…and you’ll be my reminder to soak it all up! Xoxo Auntie Lex

    Hi my beautiful boy! Monday, again. The weather is changing and fall is fast approaching. I look forward to cooler days and think of how you would have loved the fall up here. Where you could wear your sweatshirts all day! I have this jacket and wear it often. Some days I just press my face against it to smell you. I miss you my love ❤️‍🩹😪

    JoJo, you would have been an amazing Uncle to Daniel. I’m saddened that He will not have the opportunity to know how great you were. Your legacy will live on forever! I will make sure to let him know how heroic you were! WE love you my ANGEL 😘

    Joseph my amazing cousin, there’s a lot i wanna say, you are my hero, you were there for me through every step of my life. you taught me so much. you always brought me happiness. All those years we spent together playing games and drawing and being stupid, i’ll never forget that. You have always been a big brother to me, you and Josh. You have always been my biggest inspiration. Without you, I wouldn’t have been the person i became today. I remember all those times you picked me up from school and we hung out all day shopping and driving around blasting music. The jokes we had will always make me happy. I come to you whenever i need you. I talk to you every night and day when i’m struggling or needing your spirit. Joseph, you were that one cousin i looked forward to seeing every time i knew i was gonna see you, i always asked “when am i gonna see Jospeh, or is he gonna be there” kinda stuff. You were that one i was happy to see, every time. I hope you know how much you mean to me and how much I miss you. You are my best friend, brother, and cousin, and always will be. I won’t ever forget our memories we had and the things we did together. Joseph, I will never forget you, you are my angel, i miss you dearly.. so dearly. I can’t wait to see you again my angel. I love you with all my heart ❤️‍🩹 -Love your little cuz, Sienna.

    Joseph my sweet nephew, I have so much to say, but can’t seem to muster up words without tears streaming down my face, as they are now. So I’m gonna keep it simple. I miss you something fierce everyday. You were always an incredible presence in my home. I loved how you and your cousins interacted with each other and how you looked after Sienna. You took such great care of her and Josh. You will forever be my Hero!!! Fly High my Angel! Love you always and forever, Auntie Jess
