When I was in the second grade Joel, Collin, and I were really good friends. I moved to Houston, and I got older, so I didn't really stay connected. My
Aunt and Uncle became Joel's neighbors and so I would see him occasionally. I always wanted to become friends with Joel again, but I never did. It doesn't make me miss him any less. I hope that wherever he is, he is still kind and silly.

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.

When I met Joel he was like an instant friend. He made it a point to get to know me and my family. He was thoughtful and kind. He made me feel worth his while and that was his gift.
