  1. Jose, You were a part of our family for the last 10 yrs and will always be in our hearts. We will miss the travels, our Sunday bread deliveries, the beaches and the local day trips you, my mother and us went on. We are so sad you left us early but you will never be forgotten. You died suddenly with the hopes of traveling once again to Puerto Rioc this May and that made you sooo happy. Te Quiro Jose!
