This January 15..my older brother Luis died...just 2 months after my brother Enrique .....is so impossible to think hes gone too. ..
He called me every Sunday at 10 am...just as he promised our father. ..he could hardly breathe as he was taking to me...he was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and given 1 month or days to live...I was not told this....but he knew it the day before he died...we talked and was very happy that the coming Sunday we would be there. .I told him I love you...me too .. he responded. ..
I gave his Eulogy at his funeral Mass..the hardest and painful ...have no words to describe it
.He was a true gentleman, loving, sentimental, social and so friendly. ...patriotic. .he served in Vietnam. .retired from the National Guard. .and worked for the government and retired. ...he had a love for duty and discipline and always excelling in all he did...had a love for cars...friends flew to his Memorial from his car club...he was so loved..
He had a beautiful Memorial ..including The Honor Guard from the Air Force. ..
My beautiful brother. .you will always be in my heart.
