Hno. Pozzi was a patriarch and I remember him and his family fondly. He loved playing his guitar and was greatly respected. What a great reunion he is having with our Lord and the rest of the brothers and sisters from West 11th Nueva Jerusalem church who have gone before him. I’m smiling just thinking about it and thank the Lord for our upbringing in the faith! God bless your family during this time.

Hermano Pozzi, was a Godly man. Always prayed for those in need. His beautiful and contagious smile and spirit will be greatly missed. I'm sure he's playing his cuatro guitar with the heavenly choir.
Until we meet again!
