Joel would occasionally come over to our home for sleep overs and just hang out. I remember Joel was a good friend to my son Justin Krainz when they were in 6-8th grade. Please know that your Joel was a polite and very kind young man! Unfortunately my son went to a different high school and they lost touch a bit over time.

I can not imagine your sorrow on the loss of your precious son Joel. I know you will miss your treasured sweetheart, his smile and tender heart will be missed!!

Dear Trish,
How can I say how sorry and how our hearts ache for you.
I am thinking of you always, especially tonight..
What a wonderful and amazing family you have brought into this world.
It is not how much a person loves but how much they are loved.
Joel was loved by many.

Lisa and Bonner

Joel, I was not too big a part of your life as most, but I do remember all the great lacrosse games and football practices where you'd call me fat, all in good humor though. Through the past few days I have witnessed a tidal wave of love for you and your grace upon this earth. Rest in peace comrade.

Wow, it's hard to believe that you're gone. It seems like only yesterday we were playing basketball on the black top at Forest Trail. Or getting blockbuster cards from Ms. Cassidy at West Ridge, for reasons known only to us. Or talking on facebook at 3am. You're going to be missed buddy by everybody that you knew and loved. Rest in Peace, hope to see you again one day.
