To the Estampador Family,
I send my most heartfelt condolences to your family during this difficult time. Jeneffer and I have been co-workers for a year now and we immediately bonded over her stories and adoration for her sweet and kind brother. I was moved by the tribute and how your family is one of genuine love and I pray that God's warm embrace will comfort you every day.
With sympathy and healing,
Maria C

John John, the last time you gave me a hug, you took me by surprise. Always too cool for your big sister, you saved all of the hugs for your niece and nephew. I remember, you walked up to me and gave me a big hug (the way you used to hug me when you were little). It was as if you knew I needed a hug that day. It made my day and I now hang on to that last hug. I wish I could have given you one more hug and one more kiss, little brother. I miss you very much.

Go well John John,

I remember the first time I came to your parents house (Jenn, myself and Faith) were in high school. John opened the door and wouldn’t let us into the house, until I said I have the password. He smiled and moved aside. You kept me company while Jenn got her hair done.

While we haven’t seen each other much lately, except for the Down Syndrome walks & family celebrations, you’ve always been a gentle and kind person. You were the center of your family and will be missed. May your peaceful nature and spirit comfort your loved ones. Til we meet again, Rest well.

I was extremely heartbroken by the news of John's passing. John had one of the sweetest soul's of anyone that I've ever met. Each time he came into the office with his mom he brightened up our day. Here's one of my favorite memories from his visits at the office.
John was sitting at his mother's (Roselyn) desk eating lunch. Roselyn had to run out to get something and told him not to move and she'd be right back. Weeeeell, John decided that wasn't what he wanted to do, so he walked over next to where I sat and hid. Lol!! I looked at him and said, "you know she coming back and she going to get you, right. " John laughed and continued hiding. Two minutes later I said, "here she comes", he ran so fast in his Jordan's, because you know they make you faster, back to where she told him not to leave from. After which he looked at me and smile and giggled. I enjoyed those times and I am ever so grateful for Roselyn sharing her beautiful son with us all.
John you will be missed and I thank you for the awesome memories I have of you.

Estampador family, may God continue to bless you all during this life altering transition. May the memories you all share of John bring you a bit of peace during the more difficult moments. You will always be in my prayers.
Peace and Blessings!!

I remember when we first met—you were a tiny, fragile being confined to a plastic box. I recall placing my hand inside and you immediately grasped my finger. I was so excited because not only did I have a sister, I now had a baby brother.

Over the years, I was blessed to listen to you sing, play instruments, and watch you draw gorillas on the wall in black permanent marker. We were obsessed with movies and cartoons, and 3 Ninjas, and Power Rangers, and you’d continuously ask me to pull apart then put together your Megazord. Sometimes I’d nap and wake to find food or a whole gallon of milk in my bed.
You also had THE BEST hugs, your smile was contagious, and you had a magical laugh. As you got older, you became too cool for your big sisters, giving us thumbs up to let us know you were good. You loved to tease us, blowing out our birthday candles every chance you got. You didn’t hide who was your favorite person for the day because you’d push us out of our seats to sit with our friends, husbands, or the kids, whom you were so protective over. You also didn’t hide those you disliked, sometimes by trying to trip or kick them. In retrospect, those people didn’t last in our lives so we thank you for your amazing judgement.

It’s interesting how life circles back, however, just as I watched you sleep behind a plastic casing when we first met, I watched you behind a glass door as you prepared to leave us behind. We so did not deserve you.

Forever and always, John John, forever and always you are loved.
