My baby, my little brother I still remember you as a baby how I loved from the first moment you were born the first thing I noticed were those dimples, your small face your small body. I saw you grow up i was there for you through your falls, your scratches your nose bleeds always watching over you and making sure you were taken care of..and then you grew up in this big tall man that would give the best bear hugs and had the most beautiful smile.. and now you will be watching over me from heaven I will miss your crazy texts your funny phone calls all the fun we had together there’s so many things I want to say but this knot in my throat and pain in my chest doesn’t let me express everything I want to say.. I know you will come to me and I will always be here for you don’t ever forget that.. we had each other’s back through our life changes we had one another I love bro you will always be remembered and never forgotten your sister Veronica Rosas 

We are going to miss your smile bro. Arnu 

This is really a tough situation. I've never really had to do anything like this before sucks that it had to be for my own father but I stand strong because that''s what he'd want me to do. My father was a great man, father, lover, and, son. He'd shown me no matter what has happened to you in the past you can make a better future. I mean from being locked up to having a job getting ready to buy his own house with his girlfriend and kids. My dad was going somewhere. I remember one time we talked about how it was important to better yourself as a human being prove to everyone that you could do it. I mean we never really had those types of talks most of the time we've spent together was on the court. Let me tell you he'd shown me no matter fat and short he was he'd still slap me around the court. But before anything else let me say I did beat him once and I made sure he knew from that day I vowed to never lose again. Sadly I won't be able to play against him again. He was so fast on the court not in running but everything else it was crazy he'd put up shots you would think to go in but there you are looking back in surprise as he just made that in your face. I'm not gonna lie I miss him so so much, I'm only gonna miss him more as time goes by. Dad if you can hear me now... I will prove you right, I'll show you what kinda son you made. I will make you proud, in these passing months once it's time to step on the podium and get my diploma I'll look up to you and say I did it, dad, just for you. You just wait...As your oldest son, I'll protect my siblings no matter what. Any mean boyfriends I'll beat them up for you. Anytime they call me sad, I'll tell them to raise their heads and tell them how happy you were to have them as kids. I know I haven't known you as long as maybe everyone else but it feels as if I've known you forever. It's crazy to think I had you as my father I mean we look so much alike I'm of course the better-looking one. I'm never going to forget the memories we shared. Anytime I set my feet on a court I'll play for the both of us. Every shot I make will be for you. I'd really hope you'd be able to make it to my wedding and the birth of my children but I forgot one thing. No matter what happens in my life good or bad you'll be there watching over not only me but everyone else. So I say thank you for everything you've done for me. I want to thank you for being in my life. I love you and I hope someday we will be able to hoop again together in heaven. Your son Dominic  

Love you papi. From Silvia and Angel Jr. 

we weren’t close anymore but you will always be my dad & no one can change that. i love you & you’ll always be in my heart, long live you dad. Abby Báez 

Angel you were my best friend. My everything. You always made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the room. Your kisses, your hugs. Your jokes that were never ending. We were always laughing to the point of tears. 

I never imagined I'd find a love like ours. It was the kind of love people dream of having. I'm going to miss that sexy smile of yours and those dimples. I'm going to miss those eyes that always looked into my soul and made me melt and take my breath away. 

Im going to miss dancing with you. It was our favorite thing to do. Mi hermoso, mi papi chulo. You were taken too soon. I'll see you again amor. I'll see you in my dreams, I'll be waiting to see you. I'll forever be your "puras fallas mami chula", the contact name you had for me in your phone lol! I always asked you to take it of but you didn't and it's fine lol! Mi corazón mi rey que en paz descanse. Jean Estela Rodriguez
