My Brother, Joe

Well, it’s almost been four days since my brother died.

I have his cell phone and I found the last picture of him. He took a selfie. I think he was taking a picture of his gray hair.

I also have the last text messages we sent each other. I have saved them to at least three places so I won’t lose them.

That is the way we were the most friendly with each other. As siblings,  we knew what buttons to press when we were face to face. But with texts, we were able to have normal or as normal with Joe conversations.

I will treasure those texts and when I get really sad and miss him, I can at least go back and read some of his funny texts.

I’ve seen my dad tear up as couple of times too. One time was the last time he saw Joe and I didn’t want to, he said he told Joe I said “Goodbye. “

The other time was Sunday. He said that he went to go see my mom and told her that Joe was coming to see her.

I swear that is the only thing holding me together right now, knowing that they are togethet again.

I MISS YOU, JOE! GIVE MOM A HUG A KISS FROM ME.

I Smell Cake

My brother,  Joe and I would always say this to each other after someone famous died.

So since it’s been a little over 30 house since my brother died… this one is for you little brother.

Joe and our Mom

Family and friends, this has to be the 2nd saddest post I’ve had to put on here. This morning, my brother Joe Garza, passed away. These past couple of weeks, he wasn’t feeling well and they found out he had a weak heart. He went back into the hospital on Sunday and up to this morning he was joking around, being his typical self — I know, you’re surprised. But then this morning, he went down hill fast and they tried to bring him back, but with no luck. He wanted to be cremated and have a BBQ get together when he died. So that is what we are going to do in a couple of weeks. So now, he’s in heaven with our mom… driving her crazy with his jokes. Joe, I’m going to miss you and give mom a hug from me. (Sorry if we missed any family before posting this.) 

Remembering Elvis Presley

August 16, 1977…

It’s been 37 years since Elvis Presley died. I remember were I was when I heard the news. I was playing with the console stereo/TV and then I heard the announcement. I was only 10 years old, but I was sad to hear that one if my favorite singers had past away.

Being an Elvis fan since I can remember,  I always take a moment in August 16th to pay my respects.

Hopefully, I’ll make it to Graceland to be a part of another Elvis Week (last one was the 25th anniversary if his death.)

Until then, I still have his music to listen to and movies to watch.

Here are a few a of my favorite pictures of Elvis.

Where is… Michael Schoeffling

My youth movie star crush… Michael Schoeffling! Where, oh where can he be?

image

Michael Schoeffling retired from acting in 1991 for practical reasons. There just weren’t many roles available for him to take. After retiring he started manufacturing furniture and opened up a woodworking shop.

I don’t care what anyone says about Michael Schoeffling and how he felt Vegas.

I Smell Cake #2

“I Smell Cake” is a saying from the TV show “Scrubs.”

I just noticed that my last few posts have been R.I.P. and today isn’t any different.

I read that Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014), an American film and stage actress and model, known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks died.

Older Lauren Becall

I didn’t see very many movies of hers. I did like her in her role in The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), After reading some of her movies, here is a list of the ones that I want to see.

And I will always remember her whenever I hear. “Bacall and Bogart” in the 1981 song “Key Largo” by Bertie Higgins

 

R.I.P. Robin Williams

I was so sad to hear today Robin Williams past away.

He was always one of my favorite comedian and actors.

If you did not watch Robin Williams’s epic performance on James Lipton’s Inside The Actor’s Studio, you really should. I don’t think I’ve laughed so hard watching a show than the one that he was on.

Here is one part of the show:

When I’m surfing videos on YouTube, I find myself watching this and Robin made everything better.

Here are some of my favorite movies that he was in.

R.I.P. Robin Williams… you will long live in what you l left behind for us.
