3 Condolences for Jose Manuel Vazques Fonseca

  • Your pleasant smile will be missed. Rest now in perfect peace with the Lord.
    Love from the German and Harvey Family.🕊️🙏

  • Jose was a kind man. I road the bus with him to dialysis and we lived in the same neighborhood. I miss his musical voice when he said ” Good morning ” to me when I got on the bus. I saw how much trouble he was having coming down the steps off his porch and how much trouble he was having walking but he tried everyday. May God comfort all of his family during this sad time.

  • I send my condolence and prayers to the family. Jose was a good friend my kids father was best friends to Chuckles.
