I am so sorry to hear of your family’s loss... when I was a young girl, my Grandmother Marie lived across the street and the Wise Family was always so fun to visit. Gildo was very welcoming when I would visit with his younger sister Tami. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family!

Please accept my sincere condolences. His brother Deni was a very close friend, also his brother John and his mother. Deni and I stayed overnight in Jacksonville on the way to Bloomington in 2012. I have some very good memories with this family, and I miss Deni a lot. I am thankful for the time we had.
