He was always ready for a golf game.Though I was not a golfer my husband always enjoyed playing with Santos.
I know that he will be missed. Maybe there is a golf course
in heaven and he and Jim can play again.

Condolences from the Jorgensen family. I played a few rounds of golf with Santos but his main group was Jim(my father)Woody and John. Many good rounds played by that foursome.
