I’m sorry to hear of Joseph’s passing. He was our neighbor. We were good friends from the age of 5 till we graduated. Life took us in different directions but occasionally we’d run into each other and it was always a welcomed encounter.
Our deepest condolences from all of my Garcia family. Rest In Peace my childhood friend.
