    May the Lord comfort each family member during this time of grief. We enjoyed the beautiful family pictures and see the evidence of a great life well lived. We shall meet him again in paradise. Thank You Jesus

  3. Raul, you were a beautiful man – the definition of a family man and a role model that I look up to. We had fantastic times together over drinks of Corona while watching boxing matches, and any time you need tech help, I was always glad to help you out. You are forever a friend and a big brother to me and I hope we can see each other again one day and talk about the Cowboys winning the Super Bowl! Gone too soon.

    My condolences to the family,

    God bless,
