I didn't know him. I never laughed with him. Never cried with him. Now I find myself saddened by his death. Emotions are a unquie feeling. I am reminded today how blessed we all are, how short ones young life can be. I feel as though I could have done more to help, to protect or save this young mans life, though i had no means. I don't know. I will pray for the days to come that every person who he graced with his I'm sure wonderful presents be blessed with the Lord's hand in helping his friends and family though this most difficult time. :( God Bless. ~ R.I.P Joey Frase

He was a great kid who was always upbeat and had a joke to share. His smile could light up a room. I know he will be missed by many. Sometimes there are just no words. My heart breaks for his family. My condolences and prayers go out to them. Rest in peace, Joey.

I met Joey briefly when having some work done on my car at Anthony. Such a nice kid and the only one who I trusted taking my car around. The willow it weeps today A breeze from the distance is calling your name Unfurl your black wings and wait Across the horizon it's coming to sweep you away It's coming to sweep you away Let the wind carry your home Blackbird fly away May you never be broken again
