My condolences to the entire Palmer family for your loss. Jack, I’m so sorry to hear about Joey. Everyone liked him when we were in school. He was funny, energetic, and an all-around good guy. And it was obvious he looked up to his older brother with great admiration. God bless you and the family and may God bless Joey’s eternal soul. Everyone is in my prayers. Steve

Jane and family, I am so sorry to hear of Joey’s passing. He and I were in the 1985 WVU School of Dentistry class together. I remember him as one of the nicest guys in the class. He always seemed so happy and was a pleasure to be with. He will be missed.
