Hermano, how I wish I could have seen you one more time or spent time with you again. As your sales manager, I got to be your close friend. You were an amazing insurance agent, one of the best I've seen, and your customers loved you for it. You were so full of life, so funny, and your charm could fill a room. I thank God that our paths crossed, and we pray that He has received you into His arms. I will forever remember you, my dear friend.
