My condolences and prayers to his family, wife and kids. I've known them both since school. My heart truly hurts for them all. When ever you run into him he would always have that big smile on face, just like he always did. I run into little Lorenza I always have to ask how are your mom and pops. May all the great memories bring comfort in this time sorry.

I am so lost for words, my heart aches. Pastor Marcia, you raised such an amazing young man with an incredible heart and soul who loved much. I remember him as a young boy being at church with you and your mom. He always were happy with that amazing smile even as a young man. He will be deeply missed. My prayers are with you, the family, and everyone L.A touched that God gives you comfort.
Take your rest L.A. we love you but God love you best.
