Primo Jorge, never understood why we called you Jorge but that’s just who you were. I will always remember how you loved to make people laugh. I remember you grilling in the backyard when we were neighbors and I was always offered a hotdog. I will miss you very much. Hope you are playing cards with grandpa. Tell him there is no cheating in Heaven
