In Honor of my youngest brother Genaro "G' Acosta. we were seperated at a small age due to a divorce. We had went about 17 years with no contact. Then in 1997 he came to see me. We were trying to make up for lost time. He enlisted in the army in 1999-2000. He was very special and had many talents. He was deployed in April 2003, Had his 26th Birthday in Iraq, Reenlisted in October, and was killed by a roadside bomb on Nov.11,2003. His comrades captured Saddam Hussein on Dec. 13,2003. Genaro was married by the court. He was to be married by the church in May of 2004. I was to stand with him as his mom. He was a special brother, A wonderful husband, loving dad,great son, and a special friend. I will never be able to pick up the pieces of whwere we left off. He will be greatly missed.
