Even though I’ve always been your pain in the ass little cousin, you always made sure I knew you were there for me. I still look up to you and always will. Every time I look up at the stars ⭐️ ✨ I will think of you and our family. I will think of a fond memory that I have so many of. I love you cousin.

A good man taken too early. My heart still aches for this loss. Joel made an impression on me from the first day we met. His smile and his laugh were contiguous. He had a kind heart and gentle soul. Joel you will be missed. Love always.

Holding the Imaizumi family in my heart and practice with love, especially Joel as he continues in love, and sending love for the upcoming memorial/celebration of life.
I’d like to offer/share a quote from a Tibetan Buddhist text, The Bardo Thodol:
"Remember the clear light, the pure clear white light from which everything in the universe comes, to which everything in the universe returns - the original nature of your own mind, the natural state of the unmanifest universe. Let go into the clear light, trust it, unite with it. It is your own true nature, it is home."
may such love carry you and be a comfort.

So So Sorry for the families lost. My condolences goes out to you Korene and the family. Joel was a great man to be employed for. Seeing his car every Saturday at work on his off day made me respect him even more. Gone but will never be forgotten!!!

Sending my love to the entire family ❤️ I am so sorry for your loss. Joel will be greatly missed. He was such an awesome person and cared so much for everyone and their well-being. He was fair, kind, hard-working, and funny. A true gem gone too soon 😞

My lovebug. I cant believe two weeks have gone by without you. There’s nothing I could say that would equal the love that you had for me and continue to show up for me with. Thank you for all the gifts. The universe keeps showing me that we were cosmic love. But also the dog you sent me is a pain in my assholes, I miss you so much. It’s not fair. I have to go to the rest of my life without you. Love you all the stars in the sky.

I’m going to miss you cousin. Learning to play guitar from you., fishing together, and playing badminton are some of my fondest memories. Rest easy, I’ll catch some big ones for ya.

Joel, I just can’t believe you’re gone. You were the big brother I’ve ever had and I looked up to you so much and in so many ways. Just last Thursday you were still waving bye to me at the end of the day and telling me to go home, just like any other day. Thank you for the memories and wherever you are, I hope you can finally be happy and free from all the worries and pain and suffering that are happening in this world, and that you still like to drink tea because I’ve been making you a cup the last few days…Until we all meet again, but for now, just rest Joel, just rest.

How can my baby brother be gone already? Feels like it was just yesterday we were out at Lake Skinner fishing with Dad, water skiing at Lake Havasu, watching you hold your baby girl, enjoying a Dixie Chicks concert, hanging out at the pool. I’ll miss you forever. Give Mom and Dad a hug for me.

Bright and lively boy you are gone too soon. Now on a boat fishing with dad all worries gone.

My heart is broken. Joel- you were so loved. Thank you for always bringing me food, laughing at my crazy kid stories and making a hella good excel spreadsheet.
