My prayers go out to Rev. Vasquez's family. He always spoke with much gratitude and pride of each and every one of you. He assisted me in officiating the funeral services of Elodia Rodriguez. He was zealous in spreading the Good News always distributing the Upper Room (Aposento Alto) to anyone he came across. His belated wife's memory never left him. We will miss him,
