To the parents of Joseph Alvarex,
I just read the poem posted last week in the Houston Chronicle. It was so beautiful and sad that I had to comment on it. I think he must have been a fine young with great parents and friends. It is so sad when they go so young. Your poem touched my heart. I have lost 3 nephews way to early - one from the Panama conflict(Army), one from drug overdose and one from the pain of life.
Thank you for sharing your grief with everyone but please know that my prayers are with you and your family. The first year...oh my God, is the hardest.
