Como olvidar este día? Los responsables de su muerte fueron los mismos responsables de la muerte de un amigo muy querido. Lo mejor de todo es que la Fiscal a cargo del caso fue una de las mejores fiscales en PR y conocida personalmente por mi. Aún más, esta tragedia ocurrió cerca de la residencia de mis padres. Sepa usted que siempre le voy a recordar por todos los eventos que se asimilaron con mi persona en su caso. Le pido a Dios que lo tenga en su reino. Mis respetos y admiración para usted y su familia.
