Forty years ago today marks the anniversary of the death of my Uncle Joey. January 7th will always be the date imprinted in our minds as the date that changed the lives of all of us forever. One thing will never change, the love we have for him and the sacrifices he made every day for all of us. I'm sorry that he never got to meet his grandchildren because I know that he would have made a wonderful grandfather. I know he is in heaven with his loved ones. I take sollice in the fact that he is watching over us. My uncle will never be forgotten. He will live in our hearts for always.

Today marks the 40th Anniversary of my Uncle’s death. A very sad day for our family indeed. We do our best to celebrate his life by retelling stories of the past that somehow gives us some small solace but yet memorializes him in a big way befitting the man that he was. It’s the only way we know how to honor his sacrifice. I know my uncle is watching over us and is so very proud of his son, Eric and his beautiful grandchildren. I love you alway!
