  5. As tears roll down my face, I know you’re in a better place. I close my eyes to see your face,
    suddenly I feel a warm embrace. With a smile so wide, it brings tears to my eyes. I try so hard not to cry; all of my pain I cannot hide. You always knew just what to say to anyone having a bad day.
    I don’t know if I will ever understand, but it must be part of God’s plan. As I look up toward the blue sky,
    I imagine you spreading your wings to fly. Be sure to give your sons a sign so he knows you are in Heaven and everything is fine. Tell everyone there I send my love to all of the angels up above. As the tears roll down my face, I know you are in a better place. I may not met you suegro, but I know you meant a lot for Victor, Fly High Suegro ?

  7. I still refuse to believe your gone. I still expect a random message asking how I’m doing and wishing me the best. 9 years of many memories we shared. Still member it all like if it was yesterday. Loved you then and will always love you! R.I.P

  8. Siempre te recordaré por tu forma de ser amigo. No es un Adios hermano, es un hasta luego. Thank you for everything you brought to the Laredo wrestling scene and thank you for the joy and happiness you brought to everyone around you. I’ll miss you and I love you.
