Joey saw that I worked for shelter house and he used to tell his worker to call his cousin in thunder bay. They would call me and give Joe the phone and we had some great conversations about memories and current things that were going on in his life. He wanted to come to our program in thunder bay because we had a residential portion and he thought that was better than the program he was attending in Sudbury. We talked about what that might look like because we always encourage people to stay where they have support and I know he had much more support where he was and family. I enjoyed our conversations and I told him he could always call me to chat and he did. I'm gonna miss those times as they were when I least expected it and usually lasted a good 30 minutes.
Joey, I hope you are at peace. I hope you are with your Dad and all the pain you had here is gone. Love you bud ♥️♥️
