Painful Loss for Brother

More and more poet Joe Weil feels moving severely disabled residents such as his brother, Peter, from the Woodbridge Developmental Center in order to close the Rahway Avenue facility was a terrible decision.
The state's decision to close the facility has become even more painful for Weil, who teaches creative writing at Binghamton University, following the March 13 death of his 62-year-old brother.
"All I know is my brother is dead," said Joe Weil. "I loved my brother. I've got his ashes on my mantel. He's home."
