    Our Love & Prayers Are With You During This Sad Time,

    Sending love to all the family from Jose and me. I will mias Uncle John’s steady presence and his unwavering support for our family. I had the privilege of being both on his 30th birthday, and I had the benefit of going into finance as doors were opening. But had Uncle John been born later he would have been a titan of Wall Street. He had an unparalleled facility for numbers and money management.

      I wholeheartedly concur, he would have gotten their attention and respect.
