    Karen McGinnis Gomez says:
    My deepest sympathies to my cousins and their families during this difficult time. I truly believe his brothers were there to welcome him to his heavenly home. “Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed, and very dear."
