Today Queens has lost a king

A one-act play, one year ago in Queens, NY--

Jose (thick accent): Kelly, you come back to New York City soon. I show you de good, de bad, de oggly!
Me: Slow down, Jose. I don't need to see the ugly side of New York City. But I'll take you up on the first two.

Jose passed away this morning. I won't pretend that I knew him well. But one didn't need to know him well to love him much. He treated me like family from the moment we met. Alex, Ligia, and Mama Ligia, my heart is with you tonight.
Jose Hernandez 1938-2012
