for the 3-5 minutes

I’m on that stage performing;

everyone in the audience

gets to see

the real Joseph. 


Below are some personal tributes in memory of Joe; songs, dedications, reflections, writings, sharing the life he lived and how his death (and life) touched the lives of his loved ones and those he knew.  If you knew Joe or came to know and love him, we welcome your tribute as well.  You may send it through the contact us page or by email to


5/7/2015 Just posting this beautiful anchor bracelet because last night and this morning have not been easy for me I love and miss you so much jojo and I can’t believe it’s almost going to be a year since God granted such an amazing angel. I keep getting flash backs to the moment I found out in school and I just couldn’t control my tears but I stayed in school because i could picture you saying “turn that frown upside down nico” and I couldn’t wait for the clock to strike 3 that day to run out of school to go buy this beautiful bracelet to symbolize that i would stay strong for you, and the days I don’t wear it I will be sure to put it in my car because I know you will keep me safe while driving. Love and miss you forever ❤️– Nikki

7/17/15 Okay so we just got that official letter telling us that since Joe was a (vital) organ donor, he saved the lives of four people. Two men age 66, one man age 37, and a 23 year old young lady. Some good has come out of this… Our Joe Fannell shall continue to live on in more ways than one. #ripJoe
