Today is the day March 31st 2023, 3 years since your passing,and all I can say is I miss you so much.I remember when i was at your viewing and I saw your body i couldn't hold in my tears,I started balling like crazy and yet every year on this day i do the same thing. I was also one of the last ones to leave and i remember my mom telling me that i had to say bye, my head was hurting so much to the point where i couldn't, then when i finally did i felt myself lose a part of me, a part of me i never knew i had. I believe that it was too soon I hope you are happier with God but I wish he gave me more time to get to know my uncle more but at least you are not in pain anymore and yes,I know you are in a better place but I wish you were still with us. Love you Chato!'''

Never met you, Chato. But I was friends with Jessica before she met you. I could see the light you brought to her eyes, the love you brought to her heart and the spirit you gave her. Your light will shine through her for all the days of her life. RIP Chato.
