Claudio and Minnie and the kids were my next door neighbors on Fillmore St way back in the mid 80's. I was very young, but played with Samantha and Dale. I remember this family very fondly and am terribly sorry to hear of Claudio's passing. Pancreatic Cancer is a beast, having watched it firsthand with my uncle. Prayers to the family for comfort during this time of mourning.

JR was one of the most generous men I have ever known. It was always a joy when he came to the airport to pick up bags for American Eagle. He always had a smile on his face. Since retiring from the airlines, I have missed seeing JR and Minnie as they have also become to be great friends. My condolences and prayers go out to the family. RIP JR.
