My heart broke when I heard of Julio's passing.  I don't know why but I thought he was doing better.  I really did not know Julio that well personally, but I felt that he was a very kind, tender-hearted individual.  I will greatly miss seeing him at the pharmacy. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
