John E., my brother I will always cherish the time we spent together in 2019. Although, we had been apart for years, we picked up where we left off. We packed in our old memories and were fortunate to make new ones. You were a sweet, kind, loving and loyal brother. We always enjoyed a special bond since the day you were born. I love you to life. I rejoice knowing that you are in the arms of the Lord now. You have reunited with our other loved ones that were called home too soon. You will live in my heart forever. I will be praying for your children and available to them while I am here. Love you, Sherlene, Errol, and Ariel Simpson, Amber, Aldo and Lisandro Lizarraga your Las Vegas family.
