    Chapo your smile is in my heart and memory till I die. You will always be part of my heart and soul till I die. We weren't good for each other but you were still one of my closest friends who knew me like u did. Not the way everyone else saw me but who I really am. We went through some serious struggles together and we didn't end up with each other but that part of my life will always echo in my heart and mind. It was special in it's time. Only for it's time. I wish I could see u one more time. ... To his wife and babies family and friends I want u to know he was loved and I can't imagine how bad it hurts you all. After all this time I'm taking it real hard crying everyday . I can't imagine your pain and suffering. My deepest condolences. May u fly high with the eagles and protect us all when we need it. You are free now no more worries. Love you very much. I'm here for any of y'all too spanky Maria anjel jerron Nana and Julian. All the beautiful babies and the beautiful momma's of the babies. Stay strong hope ur pain can have relief knowing he wanted everyone to be happy all the time
