A 19 años de tu partida, hoy le recuerdo con mucho respeto y admiración. No le conocí pero si recuerdo estar trabajando con la GN en los caseríos y escuchar de este incidente. De agentes como usted es a quien le pertenece el respeto y la admiración de la gente buena de PR. Que en paz siga descansando su alma mientras nosotros seguimos velando por los suyos.
