I must have written this first sentence 200 times struggling to find the right words.  The truth is, there isn't anything I can say to make this hurt less for any of us.  

We've simply lost our Hide-Z

Hide-Z was A loving father, A beloved son, and brother. It's hard to express what he meant to us, the word "love" isn't enough. 

Growing up on Jellison street with Hide-Z, and Jessica has allowed me to feel that brotherly and sisterly bond, even though we've spent most of our adult lives apart from one another, I've never lost that connection.  I had hopes to settle down nearby one day to spend our golden years together - picking on our grandchildren while reminiscing about our glory days, and childhood.   Every time I saw him we would talk about the time we stole Dorito's out of every mailbox on Jellison St while Jessica ate the whole bag in front of us and wouldn't share while always saying "every mailbox has them”.  What did we do? We grabbed a garbage bag and went out on our way collecting 30 bags until Jessica snitched to Granny and got them taken away. We didn't get to eat our chips, instead, we got an asswhoopin. I have so many memories, but not enough. We all deserved more time to make memories with him, His children most of all. 

Vinny, Larissa, Seth, Angelo, Evan, Julian, Isaac, Auburn, and Sadie I wish you didn't have to feel this pain, and didn't lose your father. 

Auntie Lonnie - Words can not express how I feel for you, no parent should ever have to outlive their child. 

Jessica - There is no replacing him, but know you still have A brother left. 

As many of you know funeral arrangements are very expensive, especially when it's so unexpected, and across state lines as in this tragedy we have suffered.  We are asking all of our family and friends for your help and support. 

Please help us raise money and share a memory for his final farewell. 

Any donation helps and is greatly appreciated.
