You were a great inspiration to all! I'll always and forever miss you and all the wonderful times we had together. I will celebrate our birthday together, just like we used too. You touched my heart Manuel. I will keep our family in my prayers and hope your precious soul will R.I.P. To Cindy and Missy, I am greatly sorry for your loss. Manuel will never be forgotten. I love you all!!
