It had not been unusual to find Joe exploring the beaches of LBI far, far away from her family.

You often see families on the Beach who have that one kid... the one who always swims a little further out than everyone; the one who stays in the water just a little longer than everyone else.

That was Joe.
That was Joe.
But her thirst for adventure got her into trouble often. Like this time, when she was being brutalized by some regular bird. Scary as it was, it was also completely adorable to see brave little Joe stand on her tippy-toes, and raise her itty-bitty wings high in the air to try and prove howe big she was.

Scary as it was, it was also completely adorable to see brave little Joe stand on her tippy-toes, and raise her itty-bitty wings high as she could into the air, to try to prove how big she was.
But in the end, Joe was just an itty bitty PIPL and her chances of surviving a Summer hiding among us on the Jersey Shore were low.

In loving memory of Joe. She gave it her best shot. She knew life was a but a brief gift, so she wasted not a moment.
