    I never had the pleasure to meet you, but Arnie always spoke so highly of you and thought the world of you. It's obvious you were an incredible man. Save a seat for us in Heaven.

    Ellie, I was so sad to see Jesse β€˜s passing. He was my best friend in college. When I last spoke to him several years ago he was so proud of his son! He was devoted to you and loved his life in the Ricardo/ Rivera area. Please contact me about the painting on his website. I would love to buy it. If you can part with it?
    My prayers are for you and your family. Lori
