“We recently received sad news that Moises Alfaro, who owned and operated “Moises Alfaro Shoe Shine and Repair” at Columbia Square has passed away from COVID-19.”

Jacob sends the sad news, and a reminder that those dying are not simply statistics:

“It is with great sorrow that we share the news that Moises Alfaro, who many of us at Hogan Lovells and the surrounding DC area knew as the owner of “Moises Alfaro Shoe Shine and Repair,” recently passed away from COVID-19. Moises was always quick with a friendly smile and a compliment. He worked hard, and his mastery of the art of the shoeshine has kept the spring in our steps for years. Moises also touched many people’s lives by spending part of his time teaching Spanish. Moises leaves behind a wife and three children. Please consider contributing to THIS GoFundMe account set up to assist his wife and children during this painful time.”
