Orchid, Michael, Michele, Marisa and Michaela, I am so heartbroken for all of you. I’m so happy Joe got to attend Marisa’s engagement party and wedding. He was able to see his oldest grandchild get married. It was so touching when he got up to dance with her. I’m sure that will be a memory the whole family will cherish.
Love you all.

Uncle Pepe I have so many wonderful childhood memories with you & Orchid and Michael and Raymond. Growing up we were a close family. I remember the Pet Store, the skunk you gave my brother, the trips to Ocala. The family gatherings and so on. I know you are in good hands with my grandmother Olga (your sister) Tia Ciria (your sister) my mom Betty (your niece) and my Uncle Macho (your nephew) and the rest of family. May you rest in peace. We love you.
