I send my thoughts and prayers to the Del Rio family during this difficult time. I'm sorry for your loss. I was able to watch the service on channel 7 yesterday, a service for a true local hero. I was your UPS driver, who all those daughters used to call "slim Jim", back in the 90's through early 2000s. RIP Officer Del Rio.

Our deepest sympathies to the family for your lost. Jorge was a childhood friend. I lived down the block and we played together with the Rosiles. I remember when we would catch chipmunks with a water hose and a bird cage. Jorge was into repitles back then and that iguana as a pet. Sorry I lost touch with him. Jorge will be missed by those who loved him so dearly. May God bring comfort to his loved ones. Lenora Franco-Callahan
