My heart goes out to my tio, tia and the rest of the family. I’m left to think how we will finish our chess game above and beyond all wonderous herizones. The man upstairs knows every move that we make or think of making. Sometimes when it seems too great, the Lord will move you into position to get you where u need to be. I will always remember that smile, the joking, and the challenge that you always brought to the game. Back in Tina’s arm’s. We will meet again. God bless you Primo.
