His older of two sisters’ nicknamed Isa, pronounced (ee-zah), passed away in 1996 in a freak car accident. She was only 19. This incident sent his life spiraling into the unknown but opened up a passion long forgotten of journaling. And journal he did, he wrote, he wrote and then he wrote some more. Journaling, he found, was a way for him to communicate.
