Well Brother, it has taken me this long to share my thoughts (don't laugh), but here I am. I miss you deeply and keep thinking I will be seeing you soon, or texting you to see how you are. Will forever keep our last conversation in my heart. No we didn't get to dance as we had planned, but I know that you have the best partners now,mom and grandma, (dad is probably having a fit, having a hard time cutting in :). I know you are with me because I just found a letter you wrote to me many years ago which confirms the bond and love we have, as well as with the others. Your embrace is as big as your smile, it reaches many and holds use close. Love you much, miss you, always in my heart.
I know "yeah, yeah, yeah". Bendicion, a ti, mami, papi, y abuela.
Your sister Aggie (better late then never! :)

My Brother wrote this back in January, how profound of him!

Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the one who takes care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the 3 hardest things to say are I love you, I'm sorry, and Help me.
Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile and see how much pain they may be in. To all my friends who are going through some issues right now--Let's start an intention avalanche. We all need positive intentions right now. If I don't see your name, I'll understand.
May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this status to give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. I hope to see this on the walls of all my friends just for moral support. I know some will!! I did it for a friend and you can too. You have to copy & paste this one, no share button, because kindness is a effort given from the not the press of a button.

Dear Joe,

I was blessed when I met your wonderful family while living in the Bronx. That's when I gained a beautiful friend, your sister Martha. I remember you as a kind and gentle soul. I'm grateful my husband Raul got the chance to know you at Dover Business College. Your contagious SMILE and peaceful nature will shine forever! Our warm embraces go out to your ENTIRE family. Rest in peace dear man.

Dear Joe,

Our hearts are broken. There are no words to describe the pain and the heaviness that lays in my heart. I found myself looking at pictures this morning of the family times we've shared and am still in shock that I will never receive an email from you again, just to check in. I found a picture of the day Marlene was born and you were holding her. Its so hard to believe you are gone.You always said that eventhough I didn't believe it sometimes, that I would be ok. You always spoke to out of kindness and always wanted me to achieve more. Thank you for believing in me. I hope that i have made you proud. You will always be close to my heart and I know that you are looking at us, protecting us, helping us heal. You are greatly missed. With Love

Uncle Joey,
You have left us too soon. I'm sure you, grandma, and grandpa are having up blast up there. I always enjoyed our talks and I must say that my fondest memory of you will always be your eye-opening wisdom that you shared with me on a daily basis. You've always told me to keep going and never stop until I am happy. Everyday I go into one of grad classes or work your words replay over and over in my head. You always had a sense of humor, that I LOVED! I will never forget the time I took grandma to California and we met up for dinner along with my friend from Pennsylvania. Once you saw the bill was quite hefty, you passed it across the table to my friend. When he oh so willingly took out his wallet, you couldn't help but laugh! haha I love and will miss you so much! Until the day we have our next conversation. Love you xoox Rest easy!

Gone too soon; nevertheless, the gates of heaven have embraced a wonderful man. May your children and love ones see beyond the sorrow today, but look back in memory to help comfort them tomorrow. XOXO - RIP!
