His son, 22, has been in hospital since October after being involved in an altercation with "friends" outside a pub. He received a head injury and was sadly unable to make a recovery.
We have been praying and hoping things would have turned out differently...
Joel has now passed on to another realm and Accidental Stoner, his family and Joel's mom are left to deal with the worst thing a parent can face, the grief and pain of losing a child.
All we can offer is our deepest sympathies and love and prayers in these difficult times.
Rest in peace Joel.
