As most of you may know my dear cousin Jose passed away this Sunday April 17 in a car accident. This 37 year old father of three was a very hard working man who worked to support and provide for his family. He had a one of a kind personality that people loved and always wanted to be around for his contagious humor and love of life. He comes from a very big family that will always cherish the moments that they had with him, he was a very lovable person who will never be forgotten but always will be dearly missed. His wife is a stay at home mom who is very dedicated to their three young children. This tragedy has left her not only devastated but she is experiencing a pain that many of us can’t even imagine. Not only is she grieving for her husband that has passed away but she is also dealing with the unimaginable pain of witnessing her 7 year old daughter fighting for her life as she has undergone two critical surgeries and has not yet woken up ever since the accident occurred. Her daughter's condition is very critical but she has hope that she will get better but is in extreme agony at the sight of her little girl in the condition that she is in. His wife is recovering in the hospital and so is his 10 year old son. This is a senseless crime that could have been avoided.
