Lupe, Roger and Family,

I am so sorry for your loss! I was heartbroken when I heard of Joe's passing. We had stayed in touch over the last few years and he will always hold a very special in my heart.  He may be gone but he will never be forgotten.

I had the privilege of getting to know Joe Perez when I worked at Bryan Health. He was a good guy. If it wasn't for his health problems, I have no doubt he'd still be enjoying his job at Bryan with his buddy Lyle. Joe will be missed.
