  2. Jose has been a part of mine and my family’s life for the past 12 years,and within those years he has been partly responsible for creating 3 of the most wonderful Grandchildren that I could ask for.When he came to pick them up from my house he was almost always happy that he was here for them-he never lost that inner child.To my other (adult)children he was like a big brother.
    My heart goes out to my daughter Serena;my grandchildren Joey,Vinny and Lily;Jose’s ‘little brother’ Rob, and his family;and last but not least to Jose’s parents.I cannot imagine what they are going through.RIP Jose.

  4. My deepest condolences to all of the Vidal family and friends of Jose.

    As I am sitting here writing this I feel such sadness, but with every memory I have of Jose it brings me a little more peace. Sitting in his Daytona at the park with Brad, Jose, and JJ listening to music, playing guitar in his garage talking about starting a band or what we are doing that weekend, going to The Fox, B.P’s, or Partners, playing Goldeneye in the his basement, meeting up for soccer, or football and so many more crazy things we got into. Thank you Jose for being such a fantastic friend, and giving me these amazing memories and stories to to be able to share.
