Thank you Pep for giving all of us a life time of memories. When I lost my first job
(fired), it was Pepe that picked me up and he gave me the look then the long silent
ride home. Than there was the time you had to bail me out of jail. I had to stand there
waiting for you to take me home (I think you took your time), then I got the look
Again than an other long Quiet ride home. I loved spending time with Pep, helping him
work on is boat, going sailing with just the two of us. I think this was the only time I saw Pep
upset was when i was sailing right for the sore. so many awesome memories that i will never
forget. it’s not to let to have a V! lOL. I love and miss you Pep you will always be in my heart.
