    I will always remember Salvy as an older cousin who enjoyed showing me his ham radio equipment. We had a lot of fun back then. I like to think his suffering during this past year is finally over and he can now rest in peace.

    My HERO for the past 52 years of my life. I will miss you my dear friend. I was so happy to find out you had a son named David who had a daughter named Jordan, who made my nephew Ryan a very happy man. Thank you for watching over me the past 3 1/2 years.  Rest in Heaven!!
