JOSEPH WILLIAM HEATH
BORN TO EARTH OCTOBER 14, 1975
BORN TO HEAVEN SEPTEMBER 14, 2001
HE WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON NO ONE REALLY UNDERSTOOD HIM,
ONLY ME AND MY AUNT TINA
HE LOVED US BOTH THE MOST AND WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING TO HURT US,
HE WOULD DEFEND US THROUGH THE THICKNESS
Well what can I say, Joey, here it is 16 yrs later and I still feel the pain I felt the day you were gone, and I wish you were here with me... A couple of years ago, I saw the movie "Murder in the First," and how much I cried because I wanted to have Nikko on your birthday. How much that movie touched me in the way I thought so much on how it related to you. I cried and asked the Lord to let me have Nikko on your birthday, and to my surprise I fell into labor the morning of your birthday and had Nikko at 1:44 p.m. I was so happy but when he came out he didn't cry at first and how worried I was. I asked Nanny if he was alive and she said just wait, and then he cried his 1st cry and how I thanked the Lord for answering my prayers, and how happy Nikko has made me feel. When I look at Nikko, I see you so much. He has the same color hair as you and he's so talkative, like you. I just know that I've been sad on your birthday for the past 16 yrs with an exception of Nikko's birth, that here it is 16 yrs on Sept. 14th, that I know for a fact I will be celebrating for you too. I just wish you were here to share it with him...

Go ahead and mention my child,
The one who died you know.
Don't worry about hurting me further,
The depth of my pain doesn't show.
Don't worry about making me cry.
I'm already crying inside.
Help me to heal by releasing
The tears that I try to hide.
I'm hurt when you just keep silent,
Pretending she didn't exist.
I'd rather you mention my child,
Knowing that she has been missed.
You asked me how I was doing.
I say "pretty good" or "fine."
But healing is something ongoing.
I feel it will take a lifetime.
JoJo with his mom, Chikie
A note from Danielle about the song playing on JoJo's site ~
I was listening to "One Sweet Day" by Mariah Carey and Boyz 2 Men, and it says what happened to me and JoJo - I took his presence for granted and now how much I wish he was here to talk and laugh with. I just can't believe how this song still makes me cry to this day, it's like yesterday we were kids and now it's like JoJo is far away from me, not in my reach.
So I was just wondering if you can make that JoJo's theme song for his page, it fits so perfect...
Mommy please don't be sad,
I miss you so much too.
It's beautiful here,
but I worry a lot about you.
I sleep with angels watching me...
there is only love up here.
I am never lonely or afraid
because God is so very near.
I walk with Jesus every day,
He is very kind and loving.
Don't worry Mom, He holds my hand
when we cross a golden street.
I never cry or hurt myself,
I see Grandpa every day.
I play and laugh and sing a lot
and I hear you when you pray.
Please Mommy, don't be mad at God,
you see He loves me too.
And even though you are not with me,
I am really still with you.

Happy Easter JoJo!

Performed by Celine Dion
Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again.
Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this memory bittersweet
Untill we meet.
Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget.
Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light.
Happy Easter Danielle and JoJo!
JOJO LIKED TO DRAW, WRITE, AND TALK, LISTEN, PLAY SNOWBALL FIGHTS WITH FAMILY
HE WON A RODEO AWARD IN 1990
AND HE LOVED DOGS
HE WAS AND STILL IS MY BEST FRIEND
JoJo drew the teddy bear above for Amber and the flower above for Danielle.
Pete's Dragon was one movie I can remember about him when we were kids, and it always makes me
think of him. When I saw this picture of Elliot the dragon, I cried cause memories came that he's not here any more
and it makes me sad, sigh.

One Day when your Time Comes
The Day that GOD calls you HOME
You will be with your JOJO
Never to be alone again
You don't have to feel empty

Watches you, but mostly
He protects you
Please believe that
