Joey was kind and smart and authentic with the highest level of integrity. He garnered the respect of the global fur industry. His charm and humor and infectious, warm smile will be sorely missed by those of us lucky to have him in our lives. RIP dear Joey.

Greita and Stephen Morse

We are truly devastated that you are gone from our sights,Joey. You were never just a customer to us at Au Ceoage. You were a friend and a support in good times and bad. We will miss your laughter and your companionship in idiocy and mirth but also all your kindness when we really needed it. Abstracts are real and time is a lie,Joey,it cannot be measured when one moment expands and holds everything. What holds us here really? A thread that breaks in a breeze and yet a thread that can never,ever be broken. You are in our thoughts and memories forever ❤️
