Joey Moore, we grew up together on the same horseshoe drive of forever friends. Ours was a childhood of wonderment, one never to be repeated nor forgotten. Each unique individual made up the whole. No one could forget you, and no one would want to and everyone will be happy to be greeted by you again. We’ll hold your memory dear until we all meet in another life and time. My heartfelt condolences to Joey’s wife Pat and the Moore family, relatives, and friends. Your memory will always bring me a smile. I was the little sister to the most wondrous of a group of boys that chose to be brothers and their bond was unbreakable. I love each and every one of them and feel so blessed to have shared in their lives and watched them become exception human beings. With Joey’s passing the first face has faded from the picture but the memory will be forever strong because the circle is unbroken, not even death will break the bond. There are aliens among us and Angels too and now you walk among the stars.

Who’s trippin’ down the streets of the city

Smilin’ at everybody she sees?

Who’s reachin’ out to capture a moment?

Everyone knows it’s Windy 

And Windy has wings to fly

Above the clouds Above the Clouds, With Love and Respect, Victoria “Grist” Summers

I will never forget being freezing cold at Fido Field one morning and Joseph giving me his hunting orange sweatshirt to wear to keep me warm. What a true gentleman. I will miss him as he always greeted me with a smile and a kind word. May God watch over Pat and the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Pat, you will be in our prayers as we remember your wonderful Joseph. He was the Mayor of the dog park, always front and center with a smile on his face and a welcoming word for all. We will miss him but we will see him again one day! Keith, Graceanne and Mark too.
