Debra...just letting you know that my mom sent me John's obituary article from the newspaper. My thoughts and prayers are with you and all our family at this time. Though we are far away and not have been in touch for a very long time..the memories are there. Our brothers have been taken away from us way too soon. Steve passed away in the year 2000 at the age of 43. It does get a little easier with time....but, sometimes it's like it was yesterday. All the memories make you feel like he could be right there with you and still do offer comfort. All my condolences. Debbie (Trujillo)Rivera
