This post is dedicated to Dr. Jose Ramon Garrigo II, or as I knew him, "Joshe", my deceased brother in law. Unfortunately, he met an untimely death last May at the age of 48.
Joshe was one of the top pulmonologist in America and was a master of his craft. He and I shared not only commonality in music (Stones, The Who, U2, 80's,etc.) but in sports (UM Hurricanes), as well as other issues.
As an Aquarius, his birthday was two days after mine, on the 15th.
Joshe, or "Sledge", his nickname, in regards to the great Peter Gabriel song (Gabriel was born on my birthday) , was invariably the life of the party but also a man who undertook his calling and responsibilities like no other.
He left two fine sons, my nephews, Daniel Joseph, and Gabriel Faustino...who perpetuate his legacy & tradition, without fault, in the aforementioned areas.
Every New Years Day, after a night of hardy reveling, we always awoke to U2's classic hit and carried on the year.
Joshe, my brother in arms, you are gone but NEVER forgotten and your spirit is enmeshed in all of us who loved you.
God Bless you, buddy, and one day soon we will be reunited in Heaven!!!
Long Live Joshe!
Long Live Keith Richards!
Long Live Bono!
