I am so profoundly sad for his family and friends...
Our son has lost two good friends in the last two months.
He is grieving with his friends in Colorado.
Hopefully, he will come home for a weekend before we go to China. This Momma needs to hug her son...
Here is their last entry on his caring bridge site-
Dearest Family and Friends:
Our beautiful Joe’s tender heart and gentle breath stopped at 12:05 this morning, bringing a peaceful end to his young, active life. He was surrounded by love and suffered no pain.
We have run out of words to express our appreciation for the love and support the broader Team Joe community has given us over the last few weeks. How could we have weathered this storm without you?
Our deep sadness has been lightened by the blessing of so many of you who have held our Joe so close to your hearts. We are forever grateful to those who have shared stories of Joe with us.
Madeleine, David, Hannah, and Patrick
