Who I want to win: Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson or Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker




Who needs to be the first to go: Lolo Jones and Keoikantse Motsepe — her attitude is the reason I am picking them to be the first to go home.

9/11 — Never Forget

9/11, We shall never forget, we shall keep this day, we shall keep the events and the tears in our minds, our memory and our hearts and take them with us as we carry on!







Joe — Size 15 Shoes

Joe had some big feet. I think he prided himself in wearing size 15 shoes.

He has two pairs that I will b e donating. I’m sure that there is someone out there who really needs a pair of size 15 shoes, but they don’t have that size donated often.

So once again, Joe is helping someone else out.

My heart is still broken. I miss you, Joe.

It’s Been One Week


It’s been one week ago today that my brother, Joe died.

I think I’m still in shock and broken hearted.

Prayer of Saint Francis

A friend’s mother just recently past away and she posted this on her Facebook page.

I wanted to share it too, since I lost my brother too. This is you too, Mom.

“Make Me A Channel of Your Peace”

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, harmony;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, Grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console;
To be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

A popular hymn version, adapted and set to music by Sebastian Temple, is “Make Me A Channel of Your Peace”.

Joe’s Green Bear

I’m going through my brother, Joe’s stuff and I’m finding the most interesting thing.

One things I found was his beloved a Green Bear.


I have no idea where he got this green bear, but he has had it for over 20 years.

Green Bear has attacked my niece and nephew; has been a fixture in my brothers truck and where I found him recently, he was stuck on the shelf next to his computer.

I have no idea why my brother like Green Bear so much. As you can tell by the picture it is definitely meant to be a child’s toy. But Joe really loved that Green Bear.

I’m not sure what I’m going to do with Green Bear, but it is a part of who my brother was so, I might just keep it with me for the time being.

Side note:
I’ll be sharing stories about my brother Joe for the time being. Maybe by sharing stories about him, I won’t be as sad as I am right now.

I hope by my stories, you can see what type of person he was. He might not have been perfect, but he was my little brother and I miss him so much.

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.
