If you ever met my brother, you would know why it hurts more than anything I’ve ever experienced to lose him.

He had a heart bigger than his body. Taking care of his friends and family was incredibly important. He took it very seriously.  He would skip eating, sleeping or go to the bank to get money, if someone called him for help. He was moral. He believed in leading by example, but if a person didn’t learn the lesson,  he wasn’t afraid to tell them exactly how he felt about it.

My brother worried so much about everyone that he not only skipped meals, his rest, and loan money, but he kept his own suffering to himself to avoid causing his loved ones any pain. My mom said he was humiliated by people who were supposed to care for him, during his lifetime and that’s why he didn’t have many people to really be completely honest and vulnerable with.  In the end, we discovered that he was a true martyr. He sacrificed himself by hiding his secret pain, fears and suffering to avoid us all any harm. That’s a true act of valiant behavior; the true definition of empathy. He was a beautiful human being.

In his final time, he avoided even dating because he was preparing for the worst case scenario.  He tried to enjoy his life as much as he could. He went on long walks around the city, went to the gym, he took pride in his wardrobe choices, he ate whatever he was craving and he went to as many nature parks as he could manage. As he began to lose weight,  lose his appetite and was unable to take his long walks, he began visiting friends.  How he managed to hide his fears and handle such painful medical treatments without anyone to talk to about it to, was beyond incredible.  He was everyone’s support but he had no one to support him.

Today,  we are here to say thank you for all the support you gave us.  We are here to make sure that you see that you were supported and loved. You didn’t have to walk alone. We understand why you did it, but even the strongest need a coach to guide them and a support team to encourage them.

You are at peace now. Your death has made us all aware that we need to say what we need to say and love unconditionally. That we need to be living in the moment because it could be your last. You need to walk a moral code and always see with empathetic eyes. Tell your loved ones you love them while you still have each other.  Make peace with your spirit, for, if you do so, you will fear no evil. I have learned a lot from my brother.  I will walk in his path. I ask that you do the same. Make every moment count and make people happy.  You never know how a simple smile or hug can save someone. He did. He always did.

I’m going to miss Jesus. I’m going to feel your void everyday for as long as I live. I will walk your path so it will lead me to where you are when my time comes.  That’s all I can ask for.  I want to make sure I come back home to you. Until then,  I will lead by example and wait my turn to see you again.  Thank you for being my best friend.  For teaching me and always supporting me.   Please guide me when I’m slipping.  I always looked up to you only now, I have to look way up high in the sky. Enjoy your freedom my sweet brother.  Everything I do from now on will be with you and for you. You were a gift that I will forever treasure.


Funeral staff & family asks that anyone who is considering being present for the visitation and services at the church, please follow the mandatory COVID guidelines: masks must be worn at all times, respect social distancing and hand sanitizer to be used upon entering the church.  We appreciate your understanding during these difficult times.
