Memories Timeline


  1. My heartfelt condolences to you Christine, Jose, Javier, Emilio ,Adrienne, and the rest of the Soto family. May the times you have shared continue to make you smile and help you through this time. His spirit lives on in all of you. His joy of family is evident in the wonderful family he created and nurtured. May he rest in peace.

  2. Christine and Adriana please accept my heartfelt condolences. My prayers and thoughts are with you and the entire family during this most difficult time. He was always so kind to me and my children. I feel lucky to have known him. Much love. Xo Jodi

  3. Charlie Ellen and family. I Am so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother.May his soul rest in peace,Susan McNerney

  4. I am so very sorry about Joe's passing. Although I had not seen him in a long time, I remember him fondly. He was a classy person who always had a wonderful way of making everyone feel important and feeling good about themselves. Indeed, the same can be said about Adrian.

    Whenever, I feel a bit down I sing, in my mind, at least a couple of the songs from Sharparoon: "No Man is an Island" and "Remember."Then I recall many of the persons who were (and remain) important to me. Joe and Adrian have always been on that list.

    Love and Peace,
    Jose Melendez

  5. Michele, I'm so very sorry to learn of your Dad;s passing. I always admired your parents how they were always there for you and your siblings. They were special people and am glad I knew them both.


  6. A day after I buried my husband, a good friend told me this: "A man dies three times. First when his soul leaves his body; second when he is buried; but the third time a man dies is when he is forgotten".

    May your beloved husband/father (Joseph) be remembered all the days of your lives and your children's lives. May his memory always bring a smile and only tears of joy. May his wisdom resonate with you in hard times to follow as a guide throughout life.

    God Bless the Soto Family as you experience this great sadness. You are thought of and prayed for by myself and my family.


  7. Words cannot express the feeling and heartache I feel. Another brother gone my big brother funny as hell and a wonderful brother.. Joe going to miss you ..So glad we had so much fun at your 50th wedding Party. As my tears roll down my eyes as writing this Now you have no more pain and peacefully left us. Love you so much and will miss you so much. Your sister Jeannette

    May God comfort my sister-in-law Adrian my nieces and nephew it is hard at this difficult time. Memories are now what we all have to share and keep. Love you all.

    Aunt Jeannette

  8. Uncle Joe, may you Rest in Peace. You are now in Heaven reunited with Grandma & Grandpa and Uncle Vic. It is a Joyous time above yet a sad moment here on earth. Your Family are in my Prayers.

  9. Querida Familia Soto, Mi nombre es Carlos Barberena y quisiera expresarles mis más profundos sentimientos y condolencias.Aunque no nos conocemos sentí las ganas de expresarles algunas palabras de consuelo.Parece imposible aguantar el dolor, la tristeza y la desesperación.Es entonces cuando más necesitamos el consuelo de la Palabra de Dios.El nos ofrece derramar nuestras penas y dolencias a él mediante la oración tal como nos dice Salmos 62:7:“Confía en él a todo tiempo… Delante de él derramen ustedes su corazón.Dios es refugio para nosotros.” Además, Jehová Dios nos da la esperanza de poder volver a ver a nuestros seres queridos que se han dormido en la muerte (Juan5:28,29).Espero que estas palabras les hayan ayudado a ustedes un poco en este momento tan triste. Si tienen alguna pregunta,siéntase libre de escribirme o puede abordar a cualquier Testigo de Jehova.También puede visitar nuestra página web oraciones estarán con ustedes.Sinceramente,Carlos Barberena.
