I just found out the news today of your passing. I am deeply saddened. I think of the times we spent together in the early 90s were some special moments we shared. You were like a big brother to me and always looked out. I remember learning to drive and parallel park at Marquette park with you. Just you always looking out for me gab you were just a genuine person with a heart of gold. I was deeply saddened when your job led you to Kentucky and our last phone conversation I still remember. Then life happens and people lose touch. I am regretful I couldn’t reconnect with you and I wish you peace now. You are an amazing person and I loved u very much when we were in each other’s life’s. You were a good friend Gabriel and I just hope you knew how much I appreciated you. Condolences to your family during this difficult time. Respectfully Aquarius Leonard

My uncle was basically my father growing up and i will never forget the best memories of my life were through him.  He has touched each and everyone of our family and friends in his own special way just by his aura and kind heartedness.  Thank god he was able to celebrate his 50th birthday this year.  Im sure you will always watch over us now that your up there in heaven and if i ever need to speak with you all i have to do is look to clouds now.
