    New Kid on the Block Joey McIntyre shared some unhappy news with fans on Instagram Monday. Joey Mac’s mother, Katherine Bowen McIntyre, passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. “The last few years there was just love and sweetness,” McIntyre wrote in a caption for a photo of his son, Griffin, with his mom. “You can’t be a lily all the time while raising 9 kids. 9 kids!!! She had a strong abiding faith in her God. And I am a product of that faith. She is missed but she will always be with us.”
