    To my big brother, JD, from an unknown author that speaks what many of us feel in our hearts:
    Brother, now that you’re gone, you’re no longer here to share,
    the bond we had together, a bond of love and care.
    Yet, somehow something tells me, you are watching over me.
    Now that from worldly cares you finally are free.
    You are missed so very much, and the tears we just can’t hide
    Within every one of our hearts, we know you’re by our side.
    Ever since you went away, life won’t ever be the same,
    But it’s comforting to know that one day we’ll meet again.

    I love you, big brother.

    It’s hard to believe my Cuz JD is with his Lord Jesus in Heaven, it was like yesterday we both were in San Francisco and in Kodiak, Alaska working in the boats. But, the time we shared and the things we experienced in life was truly awesome. Being with the entire Dumale family in S.F. was a blast and a Big Happy Family. It is something I’ll never forget Aunt Vickie & my Uncle Genaro especially how grateful it was being part of the family. JD was so quick in picking-up playing the drums & conga’s and loving his music. A great athlete in many sports and the fun we shared, I can go on forever but (will) never forget. So, he’s at peace with know more suffering in Heaven but sadly missed for anybody who met JD. May, his family especially his children and brothers and sisters understand (all) the happiness he brought to everyone JD touched in his short life. God Bless until we meet in Paradise one day my Cuz love ❤️ ya !! Cousin Andy 😉😇
