Luis, my dearest uncle, I love you and miss you so much!! Yesterday completed one month since your passing and I still cannot believe your not here with us anymore. You were the BEST uncle in the world, always there for me & my brothers since we were young children, always taking us camping, fishing, beach, pool, skating, and so much more! And you were there for us after our fathers passing... you loved us as if we were your own children, and to me you were my 2nd dad,... now I have two guardian angels watching over me. You were so brave and strong through your illness, and never wanted us to worry, always minimizing your pain... as usual thinking of everyone else before yourself. You helped me get my car back to working after I had left it to retire, LOL!! You helped me have a vehicle of my own and made sure it was in safe condition for me to drive for this winter, you did this only 30 days before your passing! I'm so heartbroken that your not here with us, but I'm glad your not suffering anymore & I know we will all be together again. You are irreplaceable, there will never be anyone in this world like you, I will carry you in my heart forever wherever I am. I love you very very much ❤. I know you and my dad are celebrating Perú being in the World Cup along with the rest of us!! Pisco Sour's in your & my dads name for every winning game!! ;)
