  • I can’t find the words to express how I feel. Undoubtedly, you leave behind a legacy. You were the most giving and caring man I knew. A trait you got from our mother. I am grateful for the time we had. You were blessed to have the supportive wife you did & your children will continue to make you proud. I miss you more than words can say. My life will NEVER be same. It wasn’t supposed to be this way! I love you and I’ll miss you til we meet again.

  • To Sally and the entire Torres Family;

    My heart breaks for you. Junior will always be a fantastic memory of my childhood. He treated me like a little sister and a regular part of the family. No one should have to go through this. However, things happen for a reason that is not always known to us. May you all find some peace during this difficult time.

  • Although some years have passed, I miss you more today than I did then. Jay is a dad and I know you know this. I’m confident you delivered Eliel to his father personally. He’ll be an awesome dad junior. He has your lead to follow. And although you made your mistakes its OK. That served to teach him that a man owns his actions and does right by his family. Family first, no matter what. I love you Junior. I mid you….still.
