It must have been my second or third day of school, in a new environment in 1986 (7th grade) when during recess I looked out the window from my classroom and noticed you for the first time.

We were only kids, so why not tell the story once again.

As I looked out the window, I noticed this guy chesting you up as if to provoke you to fight him while also noticing you stepping back multiple times to prevent a fight. The kid continued chesting you up and boy, will I ever forget what I saw next. One solid punch knocked this kid out cold and you were immediately suspended. It was then that I thought to myself. " Well, just learned who not to mess with around here😎😊.

Brother, we were only kids but yet, I noticed you were never proud of injuring this other kid. In over 30 years I knew you, it never came from you to remember or talk about this.

Ever since then we became close friends as we attended the same schools through the years until we graduated high school and you and Alina met.

I also remember as if it was just yesterday when you and Alina got married in LA and when your first child was born. Your excitement was hard not to notice.

Your true pride was and will always be your sweet family and closest friends. I am flattered you called me "friend" during your journey on earth.

May you rest my brother, - hoping to see you again soon. Blessings.

My dearest Alvaro, I was a little girl when I first met you at my grandma’s house. Aly and you were dating and soon thereafter you two got married. Aly and you were always present at every family function, every birthday party that my dad would have for my sister and I, or just a simple backyard BBQ. You always had a smile on your face and you always made us laugh with your silliness. I remember asking Aly one time if there was anything that ever made you mad. Not once did I ever see you upset. You always greeted us with a sweet smile and a big hug. You became someone special in our lives and you were and will always be part of our family. It breaks my heart that you are no longer with us. You will be missed deeply. My heart is heavy with grief. May God rest your soul. Until we meet again Velo!

I remember when I was younger, maybe 13 or 14 Alvaro and Alina took us, (my brother and sister and I) to the beach and it was the best day ever, we were all so young and carefree. All I know is that Alvaro and Alina were together and they were always fun to hang around with, always laughing, always an adventure. After the beach we went to eat burritos I think from some little hole on the wall and those were delicious. I remember thinking when I grow up I want to have a cool, fun, nice boyfriend like Alina, they were the best couple! I wish I could go back to that day. You'll be missed Alvaro. RIP
