I just found out about Fernandos's passing and can't get him off of my wasn't that long ago we last talked on the phone...I explained to him why I felt so strongly about politics and I can still hear the surprise in his voice...I still have movies that he gave me that I haven't watched yet...I still owe him a rematch on call of duty..I can't believe he is gone and I'm so sorry to the family. Fernando probably was the nicest person I'll ever have the joy of knowing.

Querida tía Mila y Gilberto, no hay palabras de consuelo para la pérdida que han sufrido, estoy rezando mucho por Fernando desde que me entere aunque no llegue a conocerlo para que su alma este en paz, y también por ustedes para que logren continuar su vida y dejen atrás el dolor. Un beso y un abrazo grande desde Lima, mi esposo Pepe también les manda sus saludos.

Fernando was such a sweet guy. I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful human. This is so tragic, I can't even understand why something like this would happen. May he rest in peace.

Dear Gilberto, Mila, Cesar and Nancy,
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Fernando was a great son. During Hurricane Katrina, we had evacuated to a Pepito's home and I remember how caring and sweet he was.

Fernandito te estranamos tanto, has dejado un vacio muy profundo en nuestros corazones, pero siempre recordaremos lo angelical que eras, dulce y bueno, esa mirada tan dulce que esta muy presente, estas al lado del Senor rogando por tus papas, hermanos y todos los que te queremos.
