"Sandra, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, Rosendo. I actually just learned of his passing and I was very sad to learn this news. Rosendo and I both served as recruiters in Tampa, FL.

We had the pleasure of meeting Ross through my brother when we first moved to Jacksonville. He immediately became like family. We got to meet the wife and kids shortly after and saw what a lucky man he was to have such a loving family. He was such a nice guy and that smile was ALWAYS on his face, you'd never see him not smiling. You will be missed my brother and never forgotten. Don't worry because Shawn and Cyndy will be watching over Sandy and the kids and if they need anything they can call us. You will for ever be in our hearts. Until we meet again.

It is with much sadness and heavy hearts that we learn of the loss of your loved one Rosendo. Our thoughts and prayers are with your families as you go through this most difficult time and may Rosendo's soul rest in peace. Rosalinda, Rene, Tina, Patricio Jr and Demelza G. Lozano
