    We are still in shock over the loss of our youngest brother Joe. We will miss him. Even though we did not keep in touch as much as we have liked, we still love and care for each other so much. I know it is supposed to get easier with time, but right now that is hard to believe. I feel for his wife and daughters, I wish I could take their pain away, but of course I know I can’t. All we can do now is remember the good times we had with him. Also know that someday we will see him again. Love always Your Sister Estella.
