Nuestro amado hijo fue amado por todos. Era un hombre trabajador talentoso y un amado hijo, hermano y amigo. El tenía una personalidad sociable, con los oídos abiertos a cada pequeña conversión que se le presentaba. Mantuvo nuestro ánimo con su sonrisa . Nunca perdería un día sin llamar a su familia. Era muy protector y cariñoso con sus padres y hermanas. A pesar de que tuvo sus desafíos, nunca se quejó. Será extrañado por todas las personas con las que se cruzó. Le encantaba escuchar música y disfrutaba haciendo que todos se movieran al ritmo con el. Era una persona muy trabajadora que encontraba todas las oportunidades para aprender nuevas habilidades. Trabajó como pintor la mayor parte de su carrera. Sin importar las circunstancias o los desafíos que enfrentó, siempre vio el lado positivo de las cosas. En su último viaje familiar disfrutó de su tiempo en la playa. Sabía que este día llegaba con aceptando su destino que dios tenia para el. Dejando este mundo en paz a lado su hermosa familia. Será extrañado por toda su familia y amigos.
