    I knew Jorge for 7 years. We were stationed in the same power shop at Tinker. I was excited when he got orders to move up here but saadly his time was cut short . He had a huge heart, and was a good friend. He always had a smile and something good to say. My prayers are with his family.

    Jorge was a great friend. We met in High School in New York. My condolences for his wife and children.

    Yesterday the Air Force lost a great man, husband and a proud father. It's so crazy how life can be taken away at one moment. He will always be remembered and have a special place in our hearts. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    I have yet to grasp that he is no longer apart of our lives. It feels like at any moment I will wake up from this horrible nightmare only to realize that this is my reality. He was not only my co-worker but a good friend and I miss him very much. And to his wife and children, there is nothing I can say that will ease the pain but just know that you are in our prayers.

    I had the pleasure of intimately knowing the Airman involved in the accident. Over the last year I have come to respect him as a superior and as a man. He was a wonderful friend, co-worker, and human being. We miss you.

    The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next. Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966 I love you A-K and I'm always with you, no matter how far apart we are.

    Truly an unnecessary tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to both families. What will it take for people here to learn how to slow down, don't run red lights and exercise some common courtesy for other drivers?

    We are very sad to hear about our co-worker today. All who knew him will miss him dearly. May God be with his wife and two children.
