I, too, played Warcraft with Jose (whom we knew as Nightsglow). As Craig noted, we made so many friends in the game, chatting online on game and non-game topics. He will be missed. We will make a gift in his memory to the American Cancer Society.

Jose and I Played World of Warcraft together for about 10 yrs. We frequently talked on the common online services like Ventrillo and Discord. After a while, we exchanged phone numbers and texted and called sometimes,too. He will be sorely missed by many people just in that game community. I will celebrate a great friend that I never got to meet in person, but had a blast with for years. Rest in peace Brother.
