Moises And Sofie we’re part of the Correa Family, I remember when they would come and visit. To me they were my Uncle Moises and Auntie Sofie. May you Rest In Peace.

I will always remember uncle Mo as a giving man who would pretty much drop whatever to help anybody out. When our grandpa passed away he drove us 5 hours to be there for the funeral. He was always kind, I don't ever remember seeing him angry not even one time.
