My condolences to the family of Joe Escobar.

May you rest in peace my dear friend, you will be missed tremendously, especially on hot summer days when we sat in the garage having a cold beer together and on winter days having a shot to keep us warm.
I will miss hearing your voice, and not being able to have a chat with you.
Rest in peace my friend. until we meet again.
Your friend,
Joe Araujo
