There are no words I can say to bring comfort to Ana, who Joe always referred to in his own words as "the love of my life", or to Connie, his loving and caring daughter. In all my years as a nurse, Ive never witnessed such selfless devotion as I did from Ana and Connie as they tirelessly cared for Joe. From the very first day as Joe's nurse, they warmly welcomed me into their home and into their lives, and treated me like family. I will always feel honored to have been Joe's nurse. I knew there was something extremely special about Joe, Ana, Connie, and all the family members who would visit often. This family knows the true meaning of love! Ana, my heart breaks for the pain you are in. I heard that pain in your cries the night Joe passed. The only comforting words I can give you is that Joe is no longer suffering. He is whole again and in perfect peace in the presence of our mighty and loving Father, with our precious Savior Jesus Christ, embraced in the love of the Holy Spirit. Joe is with those who have passed on before him, and im sure he is making them laugh, just as he always made everyone laugh. Thankfully, this is not the end, we will all be together again with our loved ones who have passed on, when God calls us home.

Sorry to hear of Jose's passing. He always respected others. He is gone from the eyes but not the minds or hearts of those who knew him, nor from God's lasting memory. Isaiah 26:19; Psalms 37:29
