I’ll never forget when we visited Vegas in 2014, you asked me “Aiza, do you have a boyfriend yet?” I said “No”. And instead of you saying “Come on hurry up” Or “you’re getting old already” (like what every aunt and uncle says at family gatherings lol) You looked at me and said:

“Really?! Such a pretty girl like you. Any guy would be crazy not to be with you.” ❤️

You were always the sweetest Uncle Leo. I’ll miss the jokes and good times we all shared every time we came to visit the family. Rest in paradise Uncle Leo. WE LOVE YOU💙💛

A couple of pics of the first ALS walk we all attended. (L-R Jaiden, Jordan, Neyo, Nikki, Kloe, Leo, Rowena, Ryan).
Although we’re not related by blood, #Team Yabut is always considered family. All the parties and family get togethers, we will never forget how fun and caring you are. We will never stop fighting for a cure in memory of you Leo. May you Rest In Peace ♥️
