My Son's Story

Theresa Stevens

Joey Nathan Stevens-4/29/83?7/16/00

My 17-year old son Joey was killed in an auto accident, one block from home. The driver was racing down the street, trying to take the corner fast. He was going over 70 mph in a 25 mph zone. He did not make the turn, instead he jumped the curb and hit a house straight on. My son was killed instantly. There were five boys in the van at the time, my son and another young boy were killed. They were all screaming at him to stop or slow down but he wouldn't. He lives right across the street from our house, I don't know if I can handle living that close to him. I miss my son so much. I can barely make it through the days and I don't sleep at night. Joey is my first thought in the morning and my last thought at night.

I never got a chance to say goodbye, so I would like to now. Good-by Joey. I hope you know how much your father, your sister and I love you. We miss you so much it hurts. There is not a moment that goes by that we don't think of you. My heart is forever broken!

Goodbye Joey - until we see each other again.

Love with all of our hearts. We miss you so very much buddy.

Mom, Dad, Terra
