My condolences to Rica and all the Herrera family, friends, and relatives for the loss of Rafael. I remember when Rafael was a toddler that my Dad would always say "hay anda el toca". I would ask my mom why my Dad would call him el toca? She said because he was our tocayo. May Rafael Rest In Peace.
