This one will break your heart in two.
I know it did mine.
Every night before 14-year-old Jose Rincon went to bed, he gave his parents a hug, a kiss and said he loved them. That’s one of the things his father, Jose Rincon Sr., said he’ll miss.
“He was so loving and so gentle and I think that’s the biggest thing we’re going to miss about him,” Jose Rincon Sr. said.
Rincon says his son was going to spend the night at a friend’s house Saturday and would be home in the morning. But around 7:30 p.m., the phone rang. It was the fire department.
“I was hoping that they were going tell me they were doing some kind of vandalism things or just something we were going to be upset about…so hoping it wasn’t going to be what I heard next,” Rincon said.
The fire department told him his son was riding his bike with a friend near Broadway and Harrison Roads when a car went off the road and onto the shoulder where the two were riding. The driver allegedly hit his son from behind, killing him.
