"Jorge, you helped us by creating our extraordinary, whimsical logo when we re-branded 10 years ago. - People still tell me all the different images they see in the tree...it's like a Rorschach test. My favorites...a father holding his children, an angel....a tree. Most importantly, a continuous lifeline to the community.”
