My condolences go out to the family, as I am so sorry for your loss.May you take comfort in knowing that we will see our loved ones again and under perfect conditions.

Revelation 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."

May you have a peaceful and blessed day.

I have known Roberto and his whole family since they arrived from Cuba. We were neighbors for many many years. I was friends with his sons and his daughter in law Gwen. I'm so sad that we have lost 3 of our role models in the last 4 months.

I remember all the Christmas Eve parties with all of the family and all of kids when they were little and running around having the best time and a lot of good food that he would cook. I would sit there and just watch the smiles that would come from him and I knew it as the happiest time for him to have all of the family and kids there. Nothing like family! I may not have always understood his language but I knew the language of love and there was always lots of love! He will truly be missed! Fly high Abeulllo!
