José Guadalupe Godinez is now resting at peace. In forever paradise. His heart was as big as his stature, full of love for his family, friends, neighbors and endless love for our pets. He made a presence wherever he went with his down to earth personality and personable character. He made time for everyone, making appointments and meeting up. He cared for everyone and felt our pain. He was even concerned for people til the end, like suggesting where my mom could get her car fixed and letting my uncle know he had a repair kit for his bike and also making sure his elderly friend would have someone to serve her breakfast the same morning he passed. As my mom says, he was her brain, reminding her of everything. Although he was taken from us too soon, his love will last forever in our hearts because no matter what, he was a bright beacon of light with everyone he came across. He will be missed by so many, an angel taken too soon. My gentle giant, my big brother, José.
José passed on the early morning of June 2, 2017. He was only 35. He was surrounded by his family including his mom, his older brother Martin, his younger sister Marina, his uncle Ricardo and his grandma. José was full of life and wanted to live and survive his illness. Unfortunately, time was of the essence and it wasn't in our favor. Our handyman, helper, friend, son, brother, cousin and everything else he was for us, he will leave a void in our hearts but his memories will last forever. Whenever he is thought of, there is a smile somewhere. That was José, a beautiful soul loved by so many because he was pure love.
As it is a rough time, my mom spent day and night by his side these last 2 months, any help in covering financial costs would be greatly appreciated.
