I'm sad to hear this news of Jose's passing, I was in and out of the Nunes home for a good part of my childhood to teen years Jose was a very quite man I never seen him get upset at anything or anyone he accepted me into his home as if I was part of his family and was always kind to me . My condolences to all of his family and may he rest in peace.
