Raul, you were a blessing to all who knew you. Even the last time I saw you when you went to make arrangements you asked about my mom and my family. My mom remembers how you would always call her "Tia". The love you gave to some many will be carried in our hearts forever. I pray we can give the same kindness you showed me and my family to others. You will be missed dear friend and always thought about with great respect and love. I will turn my thoughts of you into prayers for your wife, children, mom, dad and your entire family. " Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?" John 11:25-26 I believe and am confident that when I die I will be in heaven, I will see you there dear friend.
