    Juan you are my best friend! I know you are in great pain like I was when my dad died! If I didn’t know the things I know now I would still be in great pain. Pat Robertson from 700 Club said the spirit world is more alive than this world! He is right about this! I don’t understand everything like other Saints do. When I get better I will come to Houston to see you. God Bless You and your family Juan!
