My deepest condolences to the Alvir and Rivera families on the passing of their beloved brother and nephew, the husband of KC and doting father of Kaylee. May our Father in heaven grant Armando (Ditos) eternal rest and may He give comfort to his family in these sorrowful times.
My fond memory is of Ditos dancing with his niece, Jessica, at her 18th birthday party. He was all smiles and cut a dashing figure. This is how I will remember him.
