    Goodbye my dear Alfredo, may you rest in peace with your mom in heaven. The time we had together was short but certainly memorable. I will never forget the good times we had, the laughs we shared, drinking on the deck, playing board games in the summer, and the stories you told. You spoiled me me and the kids and we will miss you very much!! I am so glad I met you and you became a part of my life….til we meet again in heaven!!
