I’m saddened by his demise..... His mild mannered character is to be admired. His support and guidance is invaluable .and when things go South at work he would always say “Jose, the inmates run the asylum”. He always made the Bring Your Kids to work day fun and memorable for my kids. I can’t put into words how much I will miss him

I never had the chance to say “thank you”, never had the chance to say a proper goodbye...you were there when my world was crumbling down on me. I’m so glad that you were there for me all those times. I wouldn’t have made it without your guidance and friendship. You will always have a special place in my soul.
I will always remember...

You taught me how to be a stronger more independent woman. You taught me to seize every opportunity that comes my way. You were selfless and giving. You took me on my first motorcycle ride. You even opened my mind to injustices and how to be a part of the solution not the problems in the world. I love and miss you.
