Terribly sorry for the loss of Jose Moura. While I didn't know the man personally, in a way I got a chance to through his son Peter, who is one of my best friends. My goodness, all the stories! I never knew a person could have so much love, so much respect for another individual like that, but whatever the nature of the story Pete relayed to me of his father Jose, the reverence and admiration he had for Jose was most evident. He did a great job with his kids, as Pete's one of the best people I know. While I know nothing I can say can lessen this pain for the man I've come to call my close friend, and his family members, I want him to know I'll always be there for him, and thank you for all of the stories about your father, Jose, over the years. Some day soon, we'll have a biiig lunch, on me, and we'll toast to Jose Moura properly (with a ginger ale).
