I remember going in a group every morning to 52 st park and running around the baseball field to workout with Guillermo. He motivated and inspired me. Honestly there’s not one bad moment or memory I have of him as a friend or a person. Time msg have passed us but the love and respect is forever! Paz!

It is with a sad heart that I write this. Thank you for always being a true friend. Remember when we used to all get together and run laps around 52nd Street park. We would then go to the 59th street pool and then go to my house and make breakfast. We had so much fun. Even though I moved out of the neighborhood hood you were the one person I always made a point to call. No matter how long we went without talking we always picked up right where we left off. Every single time that I went back to NY I always managed to go see you. I will always love you my dear friend. Rest easy. Til we meet again????
