My thoughts go out to Joey and his family. Joey’s father passed away yesterday at St Joseph’s. He was a wonderful man and will be missed by many.
In September, I attended Joey and Wendy’s wedding in Boston. It was such a joyous occasion and it was also the first time I met Joey’s parents. We started off the wedding weekend with a little coffee and dessert party on the Friday evening. I still remember at the end of the night when Joey’s Dad pulled me aside and called me Mr. Turingan. He asked if I could swing by a bit early before the wedding to take some family shots. The shot shown here is one that I snapped of Joey’s father. He was a distingished man, friendly and very open. I didn’t know him long, but he and his family have always been very welcoming.
