It has been many years since I have either seen or spoken to Joel, but even still I did think of him now and then. Joel was a just a memorable guy. He was so smart, and so genuine, and left an impression on those who knew him. I was very saddened to hear of his death, and I am truly sorry for your family's loss. May he now rest in peace

Danny, Mrs Pam, Joan, and Jevon. Every morning I wake up thinking this was a horrible nightmare. Things definitely won't be the same without Joel here, and nothing in the world will be able to replace such a special soul. God called him home to be at peace. Although he is not with us in the flesh, his spirit remains and continues to watch over us. I have been feeling and seeing signs of his presence from the time I found out he passed and it's one of the only things that is keeping me me as strong as I've been. Can't even begin to imagine what you all are going through, if I'm going through it like this, only knowing Joel for such a short period of my life. You helped me find myself again this summer. Things I once loved, I started to love again. I only wish I had the courage to sing in front of you just once, without you being right outside acting like you're not listening- lol. Despite the nonsense, I felt like a little kid at camp again(,best place growing up), while in tiny with you and Jevon. I never told you this, but it was the happiest that I've been in years. I'll forever cherish every single memory with you. The good and the bad. Never thought the day would come that Superman Joel would leave this earth. No matter what would happen, you'd always eventually find your way back home. I always used to listen up for your bike or for you to come riding/ walking up making some loud ass noise letting us know that you were back safe and sound. Hurts me more than anything that your life was robbed before you could even meet baby JJ. You would've been the best father. Your love for Maddy and Dragon showed me this. I'd go through hell and back 100x over, if it meant that you could be here again. I'll make sure that your memory is never forgotten. I dont want to make this about me, but you now know that even at times when it seemed as though I "hated" you, I never stopped loving you and you were always my #1. Would get butterflies after yrs of being around you, so bad to the point that all I could do is just watch and listen, without saying a word, around you. Crazy how after spending so much time around you, your presence would still make me shy, giddy and nervous. Up till the last day. I could never stay mad at you, for the life of me either. There were countless days n nights where I'd be plotting out whole speeches to drop on you, for when you return after long hiatuses or after a fight, and as soon as youd walk through the door and I'd see your smile, Id completely forget about why I was even mad at you (In case you were wondering why id be such a menace over text at times, and a mouse in person lmao). Nothing or nobody will ever replace you. I know I'll spend eternity trying to find someone like you, so won't even bother. I'm happy knowing that you're here with us in spirit. Watch over your family and take care of them, let them feel your presence with them. They need you more than anything right now :( Last thing you said to me in person was "I'll see you later, alright", and I'm going to hold you to it. I'll never let you part, for you're always in my heart. Rest easy, my love. I got my Angel now, Till we meet again.

Joel, I had a dream and your presence was felt! You were here and your spirit will always be with us. You were way ahead of your time and unfortunately you were taken from us way to early. You are free now so spread your wings and fly! I will cherish the time you spent with us, our trip to Montreal to watch the Canadians win the Stanley Cup in 1993, our family camping trip with you and Jevon and all those conversations about sports on the phone. You are one of the many shining stars in heaven. Love you always, Uncle Colin. Our sincere condolences to Danny, Pam, Jevon and Joan. Sending you all our love and strength during this difficult time. Colin, Cherie, Michelle and Corey

My deepest sympathies go out to Pam Danny Jev & Joany. May God give you the peace that you seek. May my condolences bring you comfort and may my prayers ease the pain of this loss. I offer you my thoughts, prayers and well-wishes during this dark time in your life.Whoever you hold in the heart of you, is forever and always a part of you." When I heard about Joel passing I was lost for words. He was truly a beautiful person. He left behind many wonderful memories that will stay with you and everyone who knew him for a very long time. He really had a special way of doing things like knowing if someone needed help or just needs someone to be there. He new how to make a person laugh on there darkest of days. He just had to laugh his funny laugh and it made whatever was troubling yah start to fade away. I'll never forget the Christmas I was alone no family to spend it with that year. Joel called me up invited me too his & his roommates xmas and he bought me the cutest scarf and hat with a pom pom on top !! 10 years later and I still have the hate with the pom pom and I think about that day often. He was so unique and funny and I consider my self blessed to have met him and you all your a wonderful loving family and always had open arms and I thankyou for that. I love you all very much ! Just Know that I am thinking of you all and I'm just a phone call away Joany xo Love,

It's been so very long. I'll start by saying I miss my friend. I miss the soul and light and fire you had. At some point along the way it was lost and we haven't spoken in so long that to even begin to act like I know anything would be ridiculous. One of the last times we did speak you assured me the path I took or chose was a good one and I told you and hoped it was still there for you to have as well. You did me wrong probably more times than right Joel, but for the good times we had when we had them you were my best friend. You helped me through some of my darkest times and I'm not sure if I'd still be here if I hadn't had that friendship. I'm sorry that we went our separate ways or at least that your path hadn't lead to this. I'm sorry you'll never get to meet my son. He's pretty awesome and has definitely heard a story or two about you. I'm sorry I'm not gonna get the chance to see you again in this life. I always thought in the back of my mind we'd meet again. Time sucks. As we get older it keeps getting faster and faster and we think we have so much of it. I believe there's something past this though my friend and when I get there I hope you'll be there with my Dad to welcome me and show me around the place with that infectious laugh and smile we all loved while you were here. I truly hope to see you in the next life Joel and I'll do my best to catch you up on everything you missed. I hope you've found peace. To the family. Without you really even knowing you were all there for me at a time when I saw no hope or light or future or cared to have one. I'm so sorry for your loss and for all of us left here that he touched. Know that the world is definitely a better and much more interesting place having him grace it with his presence. I wish the best for all of you at this time and forever more. Now he's up there keeping tabs on all of us so let's finish out strong and try not to give him anything to bug us about when we get there and hopefully wherever it is someone hides all the markers. Peace out Doctor Love

To Joan, Pam, Dan and Jevon, I’m sorry for your loss. Joel was always really funny and had the most interesting things to say. He was very witty and it was always fun when seeing him at Joan’s over those years ago. This is all very sad. Rest In Peace Joel.

Dear Joel, Want to tell You just how much we miss you. We will never forget your smile and all the good times we had together. We will never watch the wheel of fortune and jeopardy again without thinking of you. Dad is doing okay, but he is hurting. Jevon is hurting too and Joan's heart is broken. I wish we had one more day to hug You and tell You how much we love You. Dad saw You today and said You look good. We will see You tomorrow. Never will a day go by that I wont think of You. I miss You and to My Baby Son I Love You More than I ever would have thought possible. Xoxo Your Mom and Loyal Friend to the End. Until we meet again...Enjoy Your Journey with Our Great Creator. Love Mom.

You know when you meet someone and instantly you get the feeling that there is something special about them? That’s what it was like when I met Joel. Joel had a smile that could light the whole room. He was funny and intelligent, handsome yet humble-but the thing about Joel that I will remember most was his big heart. What a kind and beautiful soul he had. I can honestly say that Joel will be forever missed, he was truly one of a kind and I loved him very much. To his family I send my deepest condolences. May Joel rest in eternal peace and be held lovingly in the arms of the creator. Jenine
