My dearest cousin Salvador aka Pito in November 7, 2019 it will be 44 years since you have been gone. Our family in many occasions find ourselves talking about the good old days and so many memories of special times we shared. If there was a stairway to heaven, I would climb it and bring you back to us but I know that is not to be. The loss of you left a huge hole in our lives.
We love you for always.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you and how much our entire family miss you. It feels like it was yesterday that you would come every night to mom's home to drink coffee or have a bit to eat...we miss your laughter and so many things. You left a huge hole in our lives that can't never be fix. This is not a good bye but until we meet again. Love you brother

Even though I never met you, you are still a big part of my heart. My mothers brother who she loved so dearly. I think of you a lot and know that the love I feel for you is a reflection of the love my mother had for her baby brother.

There is not a moment that you are not remembered. The memories of you will always remain in our hearts and soul. I still remember how we fondly called you by your nickname "PITO". I remember the first time you came to our home with your brand new red toyota and gave mom and us a ride on it. You where so proud and happy. I remembered how each and every night during your shift you would stop by to eath at my mom's home and for a cup of coffee. Your death has been so devastating to all of us but i believe that as long as we have our memories of you... you will always be with us in our hearts and in our souls... We love you forever...

There is not a single day that i do not have you in my thoughts and prayers dear cousin because you were more than a cousin you were my brother....I was a mere child of 8 or 9 yoa when you came every night while on duty for a cup of coffee. When you were taken away from us dear Pito (nickname that he was fondly known by our family) you left a hole in our hearts/souls.... We will always love you.... You gave the ultimate sacrifice which was your life on the line of duty....

Love always from your cousin/sister
