Goodbye my friend, my sister in law. Your humor, candor and unapologetic world view was refreshing and will be missed. Your reach into the community around you was deep and you touched so many lives; your home was a magnate for young and mature a like, as your generosity and big heart welcomed many. You left us to soon and I will miss our conversations; Always greeting me with "Hello brotha" in your endearing north Jersey accent.
Your laugh was contagious and your smile genuine. How I wept when I got the call of your sudden passing. Plumbers were at my house, and when I hung up the phone, their words were distant ramblings and their presence, surreal. My life is richer for having known you, and I thank you for welcoming me into your family with open arms when I married your sister. Thank you. I will never forget your kindness.
Love, your "Brotha"
