“As I laid my sweet baby boy to rest today; I am still in disbelief that he gained his wings. My heart hurts knowing I will never get to hold you again Marlo, but I know you will forever be with me buddy. Thank you EVERYONE for all the calls,texts & prayers. I will respond soon, but know they are all appreciated and help more than you know. I know with all the love and support that my family has received from so many we will be okay. God give my baby all the hugs and kisses. I love you Marlo.”

“Marlito, I still can’t believe you’re not here with us, but you’re up there looking at us with this smile. THE WORLD LOVES YOU SON. I LOVE YOU SON … My heart … Pa Forever!”
