Dear Lilly,Jessica,Jason,Richie,Carmen Delia,Rosie,Kenny and their families.
Sorry could not be there with you during this time of sorrow,but my prayers and thoughts are with you. It is with tears in my eyes as I look back and see a person so full of life but yet Gone To Soon. When we found out you were sick I always prayed that you would come out of suffering and everything would be ok, but I guess GOD had other plans for you. Cuz I will always cherish our family memories and our great times growing up. Most of all I will remember that smile and those beautiful dimples. You will never be forgotten and will be missed by all. Love your cuz Laura & Family

Sorry that we can not be there physically, but know that we are there in spirit. My dear cuz Cuchie, we had not seen each other in a while, but when we did, we picked up right where we left off. Always talking about the good times we had growing up. We have great memories from our childhood. Thoughts and prayers to Lilly, Jessica, Jason, Richie, Carmen Delia, Rosie and Kenny (and their families). Always prayed for a miracle and hoped you would recover. We have another Angel in Heaven. You are loved and will be missed. Another family member gone too soon. Love your cousin Nanie & Family. Rest in Peace <3

Lillian Collado and Family, The Collado Family from Soundview,
Our blessings and condolences from the Rosa Family, Bernardo (Bernie), Mina, our children Emilio, Mario, Milina, Selea and my sister Linda. Although time and distance kept us apart for many years "Cuchie" was my greatest childhood friend. Since our days in Soundview to my years in the military and throughout our college years, "Cuchie" walked large among our small group of friends. I was humbled to reconnect with him (and meet you) during the Stevenson Reunion and again at the Soundview Reunion. His family was my family and he was the unspoken leader of our small group of friends in Soundview. I will always cherish his friendship and know that his spirit will live on my heart and in the hearts of all who knew him.
Love, Bernie (Soundview), Mina, y la Familia Rosa.
