4th Annual Smoke a JJ for JJ Day


Wow! Its hard to believe my Little Robusto would have been 4 years old this year. Even after 4 years I remember his day and all the smiles and belly laughs that came in his short life. I often wonder what he would be like today. Would his personality be more like mine or his mama’s. I wonder if he would still look like me. I wonder what his voice would sound like. Four years and you can’t help but still wonder about so many things…

July 22nd is the 4th Annual Smoke a JJ for JJ Day. It is in celebration of my Little Robusto, my son JJ, who as many of you know, passed away from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) while at daycare when he was 3.5 months old. This July 22nd would’ve been his 4th birthday. The Don Pepin Garcia (DPG) Series JJ was the first cigar I smoked after his birth and holds a truly special place in my heart.

The event is simple, whenever/wherever on July 22nd, spark up a DPG Series JJ and enjoy the time. If you don’t have a Series JJ, no worries. I’ll be thankful for any cigar smoked on July 22nd in JJ’s memory. I can never fully express my gratitude to all of you who participate. Whether this is your first year, fourth year or somewhere in between…I thank you.
