Difícil aceptarlo, pero bueno Dios quiso llevarlo antes de lo pensado a los brazos de su amada abuelita para que lo acaricie y regalonee como cuando pequeñito. Un abrazo muy apretadito al cielo para el tierno y dulce Jeancito 🙏🏼💚
Siempre lo recordaré con mucho cariño como el pequeñin travieso y muy bello que junto a Maiquito, también bello. Jugaban y disfrutaban de la parcela en Peña Blanca. Y que nosotros subíamos hasta el cerro con ellos, e incluso a Jeancito lo cargábamos en una mochila para babys. Bellos recuerdos ❤️🥰🙏🏼

The agony of your departure is overwhelming, almost unbearable. You took with you a piece of my heart. I will miss your smile, your jokes, your optimism in life and, specially, your big and noble heart. You were a man of few words but had big gestures. It makes me happy and gives me peace to know that I was present in your life and you always could count on me. It will be difficult to stop this anguish created by your absence but, it gives me great comfort knowing you are in a better place. Time passes, my tears will dry out and my heart will heal but my love for you will remain… Love you and miss you so much, your auntie Sandra

El dolor de tu partida es muy grande, casi inaguantable. Te has llevado un pedazo de mi corazón. Extrañaré tu sonrisa, tus bromas, tu optimismo frente a la vida y ese corazón tan grande y noble. Eras de pocas palabras, pero de grandes gestos. Me alegra y me da paz saber que estuve presente en tu vida y pudiste contar siempre conmigo. Será difícil sacarme esta angustia que me produce el que no estés con nosotros, pero me consuela saber que estás en un mejor lugar. El tiempo pasa, mis lágrimas se secarán y mi corazón cicatrizará, pero mi amor por ti permanecerá… Tu auntie Sandra.

What can I say...Jean was my best man! Not just in my wedding but in friendship. We became fast friends at the age of 15 and were always together. After he move away we didn’t talk as often, but I knew he would always be there if I needed him, as I would be for him, and yes, we had many adventures in the Amigo! Jean your my friend, my bother, I love you and will miss you!!
