My little brother Edwin Geronimo Colon folks passed away {brain dead} on Dec 22nd 2006 at 8:06 P.M. in Wayne Memorial Hospital in PA., he was an epileptic and had a vein in his head for years that doctors wanted to operate. But it was a 50-50 on whether he would live thru the operation. And when he had his latest epileptic seizure the vein ruptured in his brain and pretty much killed him instantly. Doctors did everything to try to save his life but he was basically brain dead as soon as the rupture occurred, he is survived by his wife Carmen and two young sons Edwin Jr. and Christopher. And truthfully he is a much better place my friends, we just feel God awful for his wife and kids. All his family and close friends were at his bedside in the hospital when he passed. He went peacefully and gracefully, hope you are well happy holidays and God bless and GO OBAMA!

My beautiful mom Carmen passed away on May 17th 2009. And let me tell you she is sorely missed. She is the toughest woman I have ever met in my life. She was feared and loved by everyone she came in contact with. Had a great heart and an incredible soul. God bless you mommy we miss you so much!
