I keep thinking this is all a bad dream losing you and Rosie. But I know God had a plan for you both. You are no longer in pain, so I am comforted knowing this. I will miss you calling me “June” . The family will get through this as a family with love and faith. We will think of you everyday, but miss you even more. We will root on the Chicago Bears for you. Look after us, until we meet again. Jeff and I love you very much. ❤️ Forever in our hearts.

My deepest condolences to all the family & everyone who loved Hector. Hector was a great man! He treated me & my kids as his very own. My kids loved Hector, as I did. He had just came back into our lives, then this happened. I am so glad I got to talk to him over the phone recently. He truly will be missed. May God guide all his loved ones through this time. Heaven has gained a true angel.
