My Tio was such a gentleman. A very kind person, the most beautiful person. We shared a birthday, every year on that day we always made sure to text each other. This is something i will greatly miss. Life is very short. Thank you Tio David for being a part of my life, I will miss you. I’m so happy you got to meet my babies!

David is our childhood friend. We grew up with the Barrera family across the street from us. We played together went to school together..I remember he followed me everywhere I went. He was a very shy little boy. I lost track of the Barrera clan until I saw David briefly again where I worked. He was smiling as I always remembered him...this is a Barrera trademark...Rito my husband has also passed February 6 after a lengthy illness this year..I know they are sharing childhood memories together.
