Your passing has left a hole in my heart that can never be filled. You were always there for me. My rock; my big brother; my best friend. I will never forget the bravery you showed during your illness. But that was you. My big brother. Always there for me. Ill remember you dearly, and miss you terribly every day for the rest of my life. Thank you for being the best brother I could have ever hoped for. Until we meet again. Love you Joe.
