Dear Sweet Joseph,

I haven't seen you since your boys were toddlers. And I just took it for granted that I would see you again. The last time we were together was at your folks house, in the living room. Judy and Patrick were in the house somewhere and you walked through the door with your boys. You seemed happy and I was happy for you. I selfishly wish this was all a dream, that we could be forever young, just frozen in that time. But here we are....Words can't truly express the sadness I feel for your family. I'm glad I had the chance to know you, it was a blessing. May God bless your soul Joseph Rose East. Rest easy.

To my brother. It's hard to know I won't get to see you again. With you pieces of us went. I wish we had more time together, as kids we had lots of fun and memories together. The jokes, playing video games, cards and being your test dummy with trying things. I miss you. The nights I couldn't sleep until I knew you and Kevin were home safe from going out, until you guys left and went on your own ways. I remember you trying to teach me to drive manual in the parking lot lol, it didn't quite work out. You left an impact on everyone you came across in the time you were here. There was never a dull moment when it came to you. You were an amazing father, wonderful brother and a loving son. Someone once said to me, " When your in pain or have problems and you go to sleep all your problems and pain seem to ease or go away, but as soon as you wake all that returns". My dearest brother you're no longer in pain. I wish you were here, but you are in good hands, you are not alone, your with family. I love you and miss you. You always had my back growing up and I know you will continue to have my back. My big bro Joey, my angel 🕊 Rest in Peace 🕊

Remembering you today and always. I have so many amazing and happy memories with you as a teenager. You were Ayesha’s cute older brother. Whenever you came around you were the “life of the party”. Joking around and making us laugh. I was just looking through old pictures the other day with the kids and came across a birthday party all the kids were at including your boys. It brought me back to memory lane of your dads house and all the memories you were a part of. My heart breaks knowing we will never run into each other again at a family gathering. Sorry I can’t be there to say my goodbyes in person. I hope you are at peace and that your sons and family find comfort in all the great memories they have with you. I’ll see you again one day ❤️😘

Joseph I will always cherish all the good times we had, long talks about everything under the sun. I appreciate that you were never judgemental and always accepting. I wish I could be there to say my final goodbye to you. My heart is broken. I hope you know how much love I will always have for you. My dear friend you will be missed. Until we meet again fly high with the angels. My deepest condolences to your family Xo Barbs

My dear sweet nephew, my heart hurts at the thought that I will never hear your voice or see that great smile always lite up a room. As I write this there is so much I want to say but words cannot express what is in my heart at this moment. I am at peace knowing that you are now resting in God's arms and worshiping at his feet, no more pain, and if you are worshiping him the way you did when you were here with us then I know God is pleased. Please take rest in knowing that we will watch over Imanuel and Jacob as they grow and become the men you wished and wanted them to be. TAKE YOUR REST MY NEPHEW. I will forever love and miss you. Love you always Aunty sharon.
