Dear Brother,
You will forever be loved and missed....I remember how proud you were to be an uncle to my two children (Joseph and Elexis) . Your visits to Charleaton SC and Columbia SC to see the children before you married.....you being so proud of Joseph being in your wedding to Leanne.
Always the brother I could rely on! The brother I could talk to when I lost my own husband (Rick) almost 7years ago. The Brother that just told me 2 weeks ago that Dad and Rick would approve of Roger and you approved of him...you will never know how happy that made me.
I loved you in life and I'll love you in death. It's not goodbye, its until I see you again.....give Dad and Rick a hug from me....love Jojo
