Dear aunt Lucinda and cousins,

I am deeply saddened by uncle Lionel's passing!! My memories of him are wonderful and full of love and happiness. In his humble manner he was always so funny and alive. He had a complete life and always carried himself as a a kind soul .

I only hope he is finally resting with all the other Salazar/Perez members before him and continue to watch over all of us here still!!!
