"It's where she will be... She's gonna be in the mint growing beside our back deck, the sweet-corn frozen in our freezer and a million other places that her hand and heart has touched around our little farmhouse and community. Joey will still be with us. Everywhere."

There will be a private funeral service. As previously noted, Joey will be buried in a box in the backyard of their home.
