Bye-bye, birthday buddy

Dear friends: Visitation will be held on Wed, August 29 from 3 till 9PM at the Ortiz Funeral Home on 2nd St & 1st Ave in Manhattan. This will be a celebration of his life.

Still awed by the smallest things. Such as: When this picture was taken, I would not have guessed he’d be dead within 60 days. I saw him the next evening (no photos), then never again.
