Aww my heart
You were a feisty one. Giving your younger brothers a run for their money, for sure. I hope you're resting peacefully Uncle Joe.... You always sung those gospel songs and spoke of how you couldn't wait to some day look Jesus in the eyes and hug him tight. I can only imagine. Give daddy a hug and a kiss for me from his baby girl, I know he is so happy to see his big brother again. We love you NiNi. See you Monday, JoJo❤❤❤
