Words cannot describe the sadness I feel in my heart knowing you're no longer here. Thank you for always welcoming me into your home with such gratitude.

I'll always remember all the great times I spent with the Hernandez Family. Thank you for treating me like family.

I know you're okay Don Efren.
Hope you met my papa up wherever you are.

I'll always be here to show love to the Hernandez Family.

Much love,

Hola viejito
Te escribo en ingles y que Bryan to lo lea.
Where do I start you were the father and grand father I never had, you showed me love, you showed me how to care for our elders, you showed me how to work, you showed me how to make money, you showed me how to be independent, you showed me that no matter where you come from or what you been through you can get whatever you desire as long as you work for it. You showed me that true love is real by the way you loved mama Olivia till your last breath. You were a fighter till the very end even when it hurt you to stay you tried your best until it beat you. This was your first knockout on earth but you are for ever undefeated in heaven. Until soon viejito y quida a todos los que hoy suerfen por tu ausencia.

Dear Efren,

You are a friend to a multitude of people, a grandfather to few, and a father to a handful of people. I want to thank you for your blessing and welcoming me into your family like I was one of your own. I want to thank you for being a father figure for the last 6 1/2 year's. I have learned alot form you that I will continue to put in work's. You will forever live in our heart's.

Papi, no hay palabras suficientes para decirte lo mucho que te amo. Jamás nadie podrá superar lo tanto que tu me enseñaste durante todos estos años. Me siento tan orgullosa de poder tener la misma sangre que tu papi. Siendo tu primera nieta que escogiste para compartir tu pasión del boxeo. Tu siempre eras y serás mi motivación papi. Como tú nunca te rendías asta en las más difíciles circunstancias yo tampoco lo haré . Por ti papi y todo tu fortaleza de ser un luchon para nosotros, arre todo lo possible por salir adelante como tú siempre querrías. Gracias papi por todo , por moldearme en la persona que ahorra soy. Ni me despediré porque con migo siempre estarás te amo aquí y asta el cielo papi.

Tu relámpago de Arcelia <3

If I could write a story it would be the greatest ever told one of a kind.
A father who had a heart of GOLD.
I could write a million pages but there's only one thing I would say is how much I LOVE and MISS my father so deeply, I know he alwayed loved me & I may be hurt but I won't be sad because I know God will give me the strength to continue with life. You were a gift to all the world and brought joy to everyone and life has never been the same ever since you got your wings, so fly so high my Angel. May you rest in the promise kingdom next to our Lord.
Love your daughter,
Anamarie Jamison
