Joseph was a beautiful soul
THE victim of Monday's fatal car crash at Terranora has been described as a “beautiful soul”.
Joseph Goold, who would have turned 28 in December, died after his car left the road and rolled down an embankment off Terranora Road.
His tragic death has devastated his family and friends with people flocking to his Facebook page to pay tribute to the Terranora marine mechanic.
Mr Goold's cousin Kelly Irwin wrote about their childhood memories.
“Beautiful Joe, my little cousin... You grew into a gorgeous, handsome man with the same cheeky smile and great attitude you always had.
“Im (sic) totally devastated and have a hole in my heart but your amazing spirit will live on in us all forever.”
Most messages said Mr Goold would never be forgotten.
Friend Martin Grogan described him as one of the most pure hearted souls he had ever met.
“Always fun to be around, never a dull moment... You will be missed,” he wrote.
Inspired by all the heartfelt messages, Mr Goold's family posted a comment to his friends.
“Joe is so lucky to have beautiful friends like you,” they said.
“He would be touched at how much he meant to you all - probably laugh.”
They said they hope to hear more special memories of Mr Goold at his funeral.
“He lives on in us and will never be forgotten, he is at peace and with his mum again.
“He has been wrongly taken from us and let us show him how special he is, as I believe he will be there in spirit, which is what made Joe beautiful.”
Tweed police are continuing investigations into the crash.
