Christ, as we know, called the fishermen to follow him. Today I am sure Jose has taken his place with the apostles.
Jose too has come and then left us
Today it seems like a dream
That he was so much part of our lives
That he lived and loved as we do
Now he has left our hearts and left us many
wonderful memories of all the fished release
on the Spanish Fly to go on its way and that is what Jose
is doing today To a bright new world, see the sun glitter
As he drifts from sight, though our tears are bitter
We know that he, like the Sails memorable leaps
Will always be there in our memories deep
About a year ago me and two of my buddies were fishing Chokoloskee and this red plane comes flying from everglades city. He flies by pretty low and we think nothing of it and wave as he passes, well lol the plane hooks around, does a big circle and dive bombs us. I swear to you he was about 10-15 feet over our heads. The props were close enough to spray water everywhere, then he took off over the tree line and over the horizon. After I heard about his death and the plane crash I did some research and sure enough, the red plane was his. Pretty crazy huh?
