Knew the family for a long time were family. Memories, boy oh boy, We I would say 10-ish, when I had the pleasure of meeting Aunt Toni, Gil, Della, and cuatemo, (not spelling that right). He was true to people, that young man had a 'Heart of Gold" I feel as if we were just on f.b the other day. MY FRIEND THIS BREAKS MY HEART. R.I.P. MISSED BY MANY YPU WILL! XOXOXOXO
