Dear Family, friends, and Gunn:
I met Negrita in the summer that I was turning twenty one years old. Every year since, Negrita has always phoned me on my birthday, and we have caught up on each other's lives.
This year, I didn't hear from her, nor in August 2003 when Gregory passed. I thought something might be wrong, but continued on my path as I usually do. I was given the news today by my brother, Joseph Jr.
No one, but no one, will ever come again, and touch my life, let alone my soul, the way that she has. She personified "love" and "spirituality" to me. Words are not enough here..I am so lucky that she touched my life. Now, it is forever changed, knowing she is not here to share it.
Negrita, I love you, I am happy you are with God, and not suffering. I have your pictures close to me. I'll take within me, what you gave to others, and be good to them.
I am so sorry for your loss. I know you had her every single day, and what is must be like to not hear her precious voice, or too look into her beautiful eyes. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
