“My Brother was a protector he was our protector, and being the oldest of us four he did it very well. He acted like an older brother when he needed to be he protected us and we protected him. I went to him for everything mainly when I was scared or confused about something, or anything and it saddens me that I cannot come to him about this, this situation, this pain. He taught me how to handle difficult situations how to overcome and get through difficult things. It started when I was just a young girl I was afraid of the dark and he was there for me to get through the night trying to convince me that there was nothing to be afraid of and now I have to put his words through this challenge cause since he’s been gone it’s been so dark everywhere I go and in everything I do and its so hard to get through it without him. I asked God and my brother to give me the strength to get through this or at least ease the pain that fills my heart and soul. Brother you will be missed but at least you are not alone you have our sister and me Gabriel have each other. We will all be together again.”

-Trisha Nerio
