Absolutely heartbroken to discover today that one of my fave online/text friends, who also happened to be named Joey, passed away suddenly about three weeks ago. Although we didn’t chat constantly, we had fun when we did. Especially about Celine Dion and Britney Spears, his two faves. I actually was thinking about him recently, thinking “I haven’t heard from Joey in a while. Maybe I’ll check I’m tomorrow.” Today I went on Facebook and saw pictures with him tagged. His sister had planted a garden “in his honor.” When I read that, my heart dropped and I went to his profile, hoping that those words didn’t mean what I thought they meant. Unfortunately, they did. From what I gather, he died of natural causes and it was very unexpected.
It’s surreal to see that he died on the 20th of June. There’s posts on his profile and messages in my inbox from the 19th.
I never met Joey, as he lived quite a way away from me, but he was one of my fav chat buddies. I’ll miss him terribly. Rest in peace, buddy. Hope you’re having the best Britney dance party ever right now.
