William Genovese, “Bill,” came to Colorado with his Dad, his brother, Joe, and mother, Gail. We drove from New York City to Colorado in 1992. You were 17 years old. You had blonde hair and a crooked grin. You and Joey went to high school together and he died 6 months after we got here. Your Dad died in 2004 in Colorado.
You graduated high school and watched your brother, Bobby, when I was working. Joey was no longer there to help you. You and Bobby bonded for life. He was 18 years younger than you. Your father had two left hands and raising Bobby was left mostly to you until I had to stop working. You left and had three children of your own with different relationships and one marriage. You became the General Manager of a Super Wal-Mart for 7 years at night. You were proud of that. You were a very vain person and had to stop working when you were 32 years old because of cancer.
Chemotherapy caused you to lose your hair. 4 years later, at age 36, you had open heart surgery because of infection from tattoos. 9 years later, when you were 45, your heart valves failed. You had COVID in March of this year and you knew that you had to go to a hospital since June. You did not go. Your death could have been avoided. Today, Bobby is 27. Mason, your eldest, is 24. Jessica is 18 and your son, Joey, is 12.
In New York City, where you grew up and were born, you excelled at Math and you loved History. Your older brother, Angelo, and your younger brother, Joey, and you were always together, in school and out. Everyone in the neighborhood knew you three boys and loved you.
In the Resurrection, you will be young again and not have to go through death a second time. If you will listen, God will grant you eternal life in His Kingdom which is the way it should be through Christ Jesus. Until we meet again, we love you.
Your Mom, Gail
