sadly missed..happily remembered..never forgotten
Tragedy in the Rourke Family
When I read Mickey's words in The Miami Herald interview with
Roberto Santiago, I came to the conclusion there was something troubling him. I could just sense it..
Boy do I wish I'd
have been off-base with THAT assumption! We learned just a short while back that Mickey's little brother Joey Rourke had become
ill yet again.This is depressing news. What Joey needed (and deserved) was a break! Not another round with THIS demon they
call cancer. Bless his heart. I'm sure he and his family are reeling in disgust and frustration by now. There is NOTHING worse
than feeling totally helpless as you watch someone who is precious to you suffer so needlessly. You want to help..make things
right, take care of the situation, ease the pain.. Thing is, you CAN'T! It's an exhausting torment no one deserves. I feel
terrible for Joey's family .. and Mickey! We all know how how much he adores his baby bro! He must be devistated beyond
I can only imagine how equally upsetting this must be to Joey
himself. (..having to see his loved-onesin so much pain for him while he's going through all this) Let's have good thoughts
for Joey, Mickey, the family and all their loved ones! As a matter of fact, a prayer wouldn't hurt either! Hang in their Joey!
We're with ya'! We wish you well and cheer you on as you battle
this bastard again! You've beat it before..you can beat it again babe! Take care and do all you can to keep up all the strength
you need to shut cancer out the door, permantly this time!
Love .. Kathy
***UPDATE: October 9, 2004***
Rourke died on October 6
This is heartbreaking news. I feel so badly about the death
of Mickey Rourke's younger brother, Joey Rourke. He must be heartbroken beyond description. I can only imagine
how upsetting this must be for Joey's wife, Lisa, his mother,'Miss' Ann and all his family, friends and loved ones. I send
good thoughts, well wishes and prayers their way in this most difficult of times. Joey will be sadly missed, happily remembered
and never forgotten by each and every heart he touched.

Joey, Baby .. Don't get Crazy,
Detours .. Fences .. I get
I know you've heard it all before, so I dont say it anymore,
I just stand by and watch you fight your secret
Although I used to wonder why, I used to cry till I was dry,
Still sometimes I get a strange pain inside.
Joey, if you're hurtin', ..so am I.
Joey, Honey .. I got some money
All is forgiven. Listen .. listen.
if I seem to be confused, I didn't mean to be with you.
When you said I scared you, Well, I guess you scared me too.
But we got lucky once before, I don't wanna close the door.
And if you're somewhere
out there and passed out on the floor.
Oh Joey, I'm not angry
And if I seem to be confused, I didn't mean to be with you.
When you said I scared you, Well, I guess you
scared me too.
But if it's love you're looking for, Then I can give a little more.
And if you're somewhere drunk and
passed out on the floor.
Oh Joey, I'm not angry anymore.
