Such a kind man, he would always help me when I needed a map made for a carrier at the post office. Always smiling and willing to help out. You will truly be missed ❤️

When my daughter was a toddler Hector told me to tell her everyday that she is beautiful. Which in turn will teach her to believe in herself and her self worth and never doubt herself. He was a very wise man. ❤

In one occasion that Hector came to Georgia to visit Dairita and We went there, I had the opportunity to talk outside and I expressed him my respect and gratitude for raising my son and Daughter and I told him “ Hector you are an amazing human being and a Great Father God bless you....... he was so humble and said.....
“They Had been a blessing “
Thanks .... It was an Honor to meet an Angel !!!!
My deepest Condolences to Daira, Maylen , Dairita and Jaime Rivera

There are so many but one in particular that sticks out not to long ago Hector and I were fellowshipping at his home, I remember when Hector was bringing me back to my mom's house, he first stopped at a bank withdrew a few dollars and gave it to me.His reason was because he wanted me to have it.I almost cried how blessed I am to have such a wonderful friend. I love you Hector, see you soon.
