I have no pictures, only the memories we shared when we went to Merced to visit. I did get to talk to you a little & that was all God’s doing. I truly understand you Pepe & all of the suffering you went thru. You were a true Warrior thru thick & thin. I’m proud to call you Primo/Familia. I know that your last breath here on Earth, was your first breath with our Lord Jesus Christ ✝️! I know I’ll see you in Heaven. Say Hi to my Tios& especially my Mom who I so miss, give her a hug & a kiss 😘 for me. Until we meet in Paradise Primo, I Love ❤️ you & you’ll truly be missed. Your Prima , Stela Gallardo- Rojas.

Nuestros padres te han recogido y ahora estás en el cielo con ellos celebrando
Vivirás para siempre en nuestros corazones y recuerdos.
Pero pase lo que pase, sé que volveremos a estar juntos, mi querido hermano
te extrañaremos mucho
Pepe. Pepito. Peperon.

My lovely brother you have crossed over and I will be seeing you. However not yet. I remember your sayings “let’s do this Brutus”. That was one of my favorites. You laughed even through the hardest time. You shined so brightly and now you shine brighter. I love you Joey. I will never forget you and the time we spent together. We had so much fun!! Now you’re having a blast in Heaven. Wow!! I can only imagine how you look now.
