    Ay pa el 28/4 fue un día duro sabiendo que ya había pasado un mes desde que te fuiste. Me encuentro pensando en ti y en la vida que nos diste. Eras una persona increíble y un padre maravilloso. Gracias un millón de veces por demostrarme lo que significa tener el amor, la fuerza y ​​la protección de un padre en la vida de un niño. Te extraño y te amo siempre. DESCANSA EN PAZ AMADO PADRE. 💛

    Tío Juanito le conoci cuando apenas yo tenía 10 años. Paso el tiempo sin vernos. Pero Dios nos volvió a reunir y pude estar con usted hasta su último respiro. Ahora usted descansa en paz en el cielo con Nuestro Señor Jesucristo. Su querida esposa y familia quedamos tristes pero sabemos que algún día nos volveremos a reunir y celebrar en el cielo. Como siempre yo le decía cuando hablamos por teléfono o nos veíamos "Bendición". Yo se que desde el cielo usted me la envía. Descanse en Paz querido Tío Juanito. 🙏🏻❤️
