Si bien la Muerte es prácticamente el único hecho que sabemos con certeza ocurrirá, nuestros corazones nunca están preparados para dejar ir... Dejar ir requiere de Valentía, de Comprensión, de Espiritualidad... Dejar ir es un espacio en donde sabemos que el Cuerpo Físico se fue, pero toda la Experiencia, todo el Afecto que tenemos a la Persona que se va queda con Nosotros... De corazón siento muchísimo no haber visto al Tío Yoyo una última vez, que haya conocido a mi Maquita y se riera con ella, que se burlara de mis ideas y me dijera que estoy loca, pero por sobre todo que se riera con nosotros... Me da mucha pena que Mi hija no conozca de su bella presencia, así como también de su querido abuelo Pato... Y me conecta enormemente con la importancia de que ver a los que quieres no sea un "podríamos" quizás el próximo verano, quizás en la temporada baja de pasajes, quizás algún día... porque ese quizás puede ser eterno... Estoy pensando en como le enseñaré quien fue Su Gran Tío Abuelo, y que ella pueda recordarlo como si lo hubiese abrazado... Honestamente entiendo las pérdidas, sé que el Tiempo sana todo, y comprendo que su Energía nos acompañará... Sólo que en el Presente, despedirse es Muy difícil... Los quiero Muchísimo Tía Vicky, Peach, Juan Pablo, Victoria, Jorge Arturo, Tia Carmen, a todos los que están conectados con el Tío Yoyo... Le mando un Abrazo de Corazón y de contención para que de a poquito vaya curándose el Corazón de tanto Amor....

My sincerest condolences for the loss of one of the best professors I've ever had. Professor Lagunas made such a huge impact on me as a student who lacked confidence in my ability to speak/learn Spanish. Gone, but never forgotten professor. Rest in peace.

QEPD, Dr. Jorge Román-Lagunas

Jorge was my professor at Concordia College and I was his neighbor for one summer. He and Vicki were role models for me, in and out of the classroom and he is one of the most professional and stringent educators that I have ever had. My favorite memory of him was when he administered the ACTFL OPI for me to become a teacher and that memory will live on!

The reason for my interest in becoming a Spanish teacher was you. You inspired me due to all your knowledge. I will never forget everything you taught me. You will forever be missed. My prayers to your family. Rest in peace.

Eternal memory and blessed repose.

JP and family, I am so very sorry to read this sad news. Jorge would always stop and say hello when we passed each other in the halls. He knew JP was in my class so he always kept me posted about his son. He was so proud of his family. I will miss visiting with him. But, I know the greatest loss is felt by his family. I pray that fond memories bring a smile to all of you. Bless you Jorge... May you Rest In Peace.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Jorge's passing. Twenty-five years ago he and I were newly hired faculty at Purdue Northwest. He was a department head and I was fresh out of graduate school--in my first job. He was exceptionally generous in his counsel and helped me through many difficult challenges. Later, I met Vicki and learned that like Jorge she is exceedingly supportive of colleagues. My heart goes out to you all at this difficult time, and I am keeping the family in my thoughts.
