  • My heart breaks for the loss of such a sweet kid. I had the privilege of being Angel's second grade teacher. His smiling face, beautiful spirit, and sense of humor will always remain with me. I don't understand this, but I hope that he has found the peace that he needed, and I hope that his family and friends can comfort one another and find their own peace in their sadness in the days to come. Most of all, I hope that students will realize how precious life is, and to honor the love they have for their friends and family through the life they live and in their service to others.

  • I remember taking Angel fishing,teaching him a few guitar chords and playing catch with him in his younger years. I'm at a complete loss of words. He was loving, caring, intelligent and just sharp around all edges. I just wish he was still here. His name is Angel for a reason, and thats because he is an angel now watching over us. Miss you and love you little bro.

  • You are deeply missed, everyday. I lost you bestfriend. You defiantly understood me on so many levels. Thank you for being in my life and giving me those great memories. Im sorry we left off on a wrong note. You should have atleast talked to me instead of push me away.I love you!

  • Angel is gone but not forgotten. It is so sad to think of all of the hidden potential that he had and never got to show all of us all of the amazing things that I know he could have achieved. Still thinking of you and your family. Love,
