Siempre estara en nuestros corazones Jesus, siempre lo voy a recordar como la persona alegre,trabajadora y humilde que fue. Siempre lo recordare como usted era un hombre de respeto que siempre trabajo muy duro para sagar su familia adelante pero mas que nada un gran GUERRERO que nunca se rindio en la vida! Descansa en paz.
