  1. My heartfelt condolences to all who were left to grieve you. You were far too young to have left us; however, we can be thankful that you are no longer suffering.

    I have fond memories of my cousin Tachito. His parents were not only my Uncle and Aunt but my godparents as well. My parents were his godparents. We would often visit my Tío Tacho, Tía Dora and Tachito, Marta Silvia, Gloria, Eddie, Albert, and Adriana during my youth in Laredo. Their household was nonstop, in a good way, where ours was a little more mellow! My mother, Carlos, Melissa and family extend our love and condolences. Tachito will always be young in our hearts and we will truly miss him.
