So many lovely memories as a little girl with my Padrino. I've never heard more laughter than when you, Lily and my parents were together, so much love between friends. May God welcome you with open arms and hold Lily and all those mourning in His palm.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.
1 Thessalonians 4:17-18
After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
John was a good man with such a big heart. I am thankful I had the honor of sharing the stage with John and those memories will never be forgotten. Such a huge loss. Lily, may the comfort and peace of God help you and your family through this difficult time. You'll are in our prayers. I will truly miss my friend John. Rest in peace my friend. Until we meet again one day Sir, Raulito.

Lily, Tony & Patty... Mom and my heart and prayers go out to you... John was an amazing husband, father and grandfather... His time was too short but he left behind precious memories that can never be taken... I'm sure daddy was there to greet him along with all his family. Praying for God's grace and mercy to help you during this most difficult time. We love you all. He's playing beautiful music for God. ❤❤❤ Prima Leti

Primo John, You are Absolutely the Best! When I was fresh out of the U.S. Marines Corps I moved to Corpus and you took me under your wing and got me a job at Budweiser. We had a blast working and hanging out together. Marina, Naomi, Mom, Dad watched you play one night and you performed my dad favor song "Sweet Home Chicago" What an epic night. You earned your Wings now and you are watching over all of us . I send our Condolences ,Prayers &Love to You All!!!!

Good, close friends are rare and my buddy John was that rarest kind of friend; the kind you could call at 2am with car trouble or needing some kind of help and he'd be there. We got to be the closest of friends while in the band we started and that band will never be the same without John and the other originals. They say only the good die young. Johnny was good.

Uncle John, I can't believe you're gone, you will be terribly missed by so many. May the choirs of angels come to meet you, may they speed you to paradise. May the Lord enfold you in His mercy, may you find eternal life! I will never forget you and everything you taught me about having confidence in playing music for others. Thank you for everything you have done for everyone in our family. Love you always!

I am going to miss you so much Johnny! You were the best brother in-law that anyone could ask for. May you rest in peace, and say hi to all of the 'palomia', in whose company you are now with. God bless you Johnny.
