    Dear Fabian, Kiko & Brenda,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is not easy, but we must know they are not gone forever & will live on in our hearts, until we meet again in the eternal life. Efrain was a unique individual and I truly enjoyed having him as a Father n Law.
    May God comfort you at this time and My Prayers are with you all????

    This world has lost a good man. He was the only Pepa my children knew, and he was a godsend to my mom. Efrain, I hope you are dancing.
