It is with much sadness that I announce that our beloved Tio Pepin passed this morning at 2am. I know I speak for all the members of our family when I thank you all for your kinds words, warm thoughts, and prayers during the last few months. Although this is something we’ve been expecting for some time, the loss of a loved one is never easy, but the support of the Babalu family (contributors and readers alike) made it a bit easier to bear.
I’m sure Val will have more to say in the near future, but right now he is by my grandfather side as he deals with the reality of losing his big brother. Again, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
R.I.P. Tio Pepin
