I worked with Sigi at Gibbons & Reed. What a great guy! I had the opportunity to be at his home and meet his wife. He was a generous person giving me fresh vegetables from his garden and home made food. Sigi always had a burrito or tamale for me when we worked together. I never took the chance to go fishing with him but we sure talked about it a lot. I was sorry to hear that he passed. Knowing Sigi enriched my life and I am grateful we crossed paths.

JJ & Misti,

Words cannot express how sorry I am that you have to deal with this. It's not easy.
Slowly but surely It does get easier. If you or your family need anything, Please do not hesitate to call me. Even if your upset and need to scream.
JJ, I know you will make him proud and do all that you can to achieve your goal. Rest In Paradise.
