Not a day goes by without you on my mind. Although we never got the chance to meet, I see all the best of you shine through Victor.
Thank you for sharing your best friend with me, as I now get to call him husband. You'd be so proud of him and the man he has become. I hope the life and family we've started together has you smiling from above.
Don't worry - Victor is still a White Sox fan and we will forever call it Sox Park.

We love you. We miss you everyday. "Always on our minds and forever in our hearts"
