Our friend, Joaquin, was taken on Pentecost Sunday and received the Holy Spirit as he obediently followed God’s love. His presence will be missed but his love for his family and many wonderful memories will live forever. My condolences to his beautiful family and Corina, who I cherish her friendship. Thank you for allowing Rudy and I to share happy moments with Joaquin, the kids and you. You both have built a beautiful family together. His memory, good deeds, advice and lessons will live in their hearts forever. Rest In Peace, dear faithful friend. Selma Santos

Corina and family, Please accept my sincere condolences on Joaquins passing. Our life-long friendship is filled with great times from our school years to the years at LNB and many many rounds of golf. Joaquin, the kid, in school, the co-worker at LNB and the long driving golfer remained the same Joaquin. Appreciated his friendship and many cups of coffee where we shared stories of our lives and families. He loved his family and I know he will be missed most of all by his family but also by the many friends he forged over the years. If I had to describe Joaquin in one word, “straight-shooter,” says it all. As we all age and deal with recurring health problems brought on with age, keep a spot open for me on the foursome in the sky. Rest in eternal peace.
