Joey's family wants everyone to realize that addiction is a disease. It is a deadly disease. It doesn't matter how long you have been using, whether you have been using for 20 years or it is your first time, please understand it could be your last time. Joey always said "It wasn't going to take me and he was not going to die from it and it will all be okay". He was wrong! Please do not let Joey's death be in vain, and if you are using or are addicted to any substance of any kind, PLEASE get help so another family doesn't have to lose someone they dearly love. If you need help with your addiction, call the PA addiction hotline 1-800-662-4357.
Friends will be received on Wednesday from 4:00-7:00 PM, where a funeral service will be celebrated at 7:00 PM at the McCabe Funeral Home Inc., 114 Maple Ave., Punxsutawney, PA 15767
