As the evening grew old I decided to stop by In N Out before I hit the hotel. I got my order in and noticed a lime green ride peeking around the corner of the building that wasn’t there before I got done ordering. As I cruised around the building I saw this 21 window VW micro bus. Jae loved some VW’s from fastbacks to bugs to these buses. I knew right away Jae’s angel was watching. I had to hop out and snap some pictures. Very cool owner and sweet ride. Thanks Jae for the sign! Love you sir!
Following the burial at Resurrection there was a Celebration of life picnic for the friends and family of Jae Bueno. This celebration was not a sad event as this was a time to enjoy the times we had with Jae and in remembrance of him. A friend was lost but we all gained an angel above. Jae no longer hurts and is no longer sick. We all loved him dearly and will miss him greatly. His legacy will live on in his photos, his family, and his nephew Steven, who is knocking out great photos just like him.
Carrying on the tradition of his uncle Jae Bueno is Steven Ortiz
PeeWee the three legged Chihuahua was in attendance.
Jae’s son Julian’s birthday was the day prior.
Jae’s compadres from years past
And with the recent events, we celebrated Julian’s birthday at the park. 10 years old…man the time flies!!!
As this will wrap up the series remembering Jae, I cannot thank all involved in the help of the family during these tough times. Danny D for putting Jae and his family first with the 1962 Chevy build and casket painting as well as support. Joey Hernandez and his family for also for putting Jae and the family first during this tough time. The love and respect from EVERYONE involved was off the charts. Jae has touched so many people and seeing them give it back 10 fold was terrific! I will miss Jae greatly and my heart is still missing him. I know it will be tough for the family these ongoing weeks, months, and years…Jae was a one of the great ones took way to soon. I am humbled by the generosity of Myles Kovacs for gifting me with the plane tickets to come out for Jae’s services. I am appreciative that Steph and the family allowed me to come out and mourn with them as well as shoot photos. And I thank all the friends and families that allowed me into their lives to photograph this sad time. I am truly appreciative. I love you guys and will be in contact more!
We started are Easter Egg Dying last night with a HUGE push from Gisselle through out the whole week and mostly super intense last night. She was DEFINITELY ready to rock and dye!
After she passed out last night we hustled her Easter basket together and unboxed the one grandma sent.
She was definitely stoked this morning with BOTH her baskets!
After a mini egg hunt and a little house cleaning we headed to the park.
Now that she has worn me out and is stoked about her Easter day I am whipped. Time to get a little rest!
