Obituary: José J. Cofiño
Published in October 2017
This is a note to all of Ben Trust’s friends. Ben is not actively on Facebook right now so he is unlikely to respond to your touching and kind posts and messages. He is a bit overwhelmed right now.
Ben shared with me, and asked that I share with you, that José’s passing was peaceful. It was not unexpected and they had time to fully process what was happening. José J Cofiño left us with dignity, as he always hoped he could. During José’s decline, Ben and José shared weeks of visits with close friends as well as calls and messages from many others. It was all an amazing and wonderful tribute to José. He left knowing he was loved.

On behalf of Ben, thank you each and every one of Jose’s and Ben’s friends for the outpouring of love and support.
