Joseph was my little brother. Due to unexpected circumstances beyond our moms control, I was placed for adoption at 18mo’s old in Oklahoma. So I only recently found my birth family including Joseph through AncestryDNA. We talked on the phone a few times but then his phone was disconnected & I had no way to reach him. I was in Colorado hoping to meet him the week before he died. I missed him by just 3 days & now will never meet him or our mom. But I am so thankful for those phone calls & for a voicemail I recently found saved on my phone from him. But we will someday sll be reunited. I love you lil brother, RIP, Love, your big sister ❤️ Andrea
