Joe Perez Memorial Fund

It is with immense sadness that I share with you the loss of my Superman and brother, Joe! He became vey ill and could no longer fight.  He is no longer suffering and is now with mom, dad, sister and loved ones. I have never met a human being with such a great will to live life to the fullest and beyond like my brother did. We all rememberJoe's love of dance, music, wrestling, eating, flirting with the ladies ("You loose weight?", "You're pertiful.") and his special hugs.  I want to be just like Joe. Like mom used to say, "Joe may have Down Syndrome but out of all 5 children, Joe is the "normal" one."

We are in need of funds to help with his funeral costs and as soon as possible.

I, Gina Smith his sister, will be in charge of the final expenses and any contributions will be grately appreciated.

Thank You!!
