"Threads of Love" Donor Memorial Quilt: Quilt 4
Joseph Thomas Berthesi
"Our Angel of Love"
We are proud to honor Joey's memory through organ donation and this Gift of Life quilt.
Joey is truly a blessed child of God. Joseph's name translated means "he shall add..." and as an infant he was nicknamed "Joey Love" - which couldn't have been more appropriate. He displayed an extraordinary amount of love that surpassed his young age.
It is impossible to capture the true essence of Joey - he is all that is good, pure and loving and the impact he made on so many in such a short amount of time on Earth is awe-inspiring. He had a unique love for family and friends. He had blonde hair and sparkling blue eyes and a radiant smile and contagious laugh. He was joyous, kind, giving, caring, fearless, exuberant - so full of life, with wisdom beyond his years and was gifted naturally artistically and athletically. He had a self-confidence and self-love that translated into helping others and making others feel good about themselves. He was beautiful inside and out-surely a child kissed by God.
He is a blessed gift we will always cherish. We couldn't have been more blessed to share in his life and love. He is our Angel of Love - whose legacy is truly everlasting love.
Joey - you are forever in our hearts and your spirit continues to shine brightly and will always live with us and in us.
