Jose, each day I sweep a wooden bridge by a thousand pound boulder with a metal plaque telling the story about your life. No excuses from you, even though you had a bumpy start in life, when Castro took over Cuba. You told me adversity only made you stronger. It is like your spirit is there where I pass each day. I say, "Hello." You left a mark on so many people's lives in so many countries. Truly, you will live forever.

Don Jose, I do miss you my man. So much of my classroom delivery today comes from what I had learned from you. You have left a legacy through many.

You have been gone almost a year now but I still think of you often. Sometimes I will pick up the phone to call you and realize I can't. I miss your friendship, sense of humor and passion for teaching. You made a significant impact on my life. I love and miss you Jose!

Jose RIP. I remember those days in High School when we used to hang out. Remember the day that we reconnected in GLENCO after all those years had passed from high school. You invited me to your home and had dinner with your beautiful wife and gorgeous children. I also remember the days you used to come to Miami to visit and meet at Monty Trainer's and you spoke about how proud you were of your wife and children. Jose we loved you my friend. RIP we will someday meet again.

Jose, You will be missed. I saw you as another father. I wish I had half the knowledge that you had. Thank you so much for sharing that knowledge. I have attended your Spanish for Law Enforcement Basic, Enhanced, Immersion, and Instructor Schools. I learned so much and they were so fun. Jose, you kept everyone laughing and what kept things so interesting is that sometimes I was not sure when you were serious or just relajando. I remember your saying "That excuse is as good as a screen door in a submarine. I want to thank you so much for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to advance in my Spanish Law Enforcement Career. Jose you are truly loved by many and have positively influenced many people. God bless you Jose and may you rest in peace. It was a pleasure meeting you and I will see you again in the House of the Lord.
