Raul lived a much fulfilled life in the company of his lovely family. He has touched all our hearts. Raul will be deeply missed. Raul was a very Proud Marine that served our country for 22 years. He served during the Korean War, and during Vietnam. "SEMPER FI" was his motto. Everyone that knew him can testify to that. "My Angel up in Heaven" My angel up in heaven, I wanted you to know, I feel you watching over me, everywhere I go. I wish you were here with me, but that can never be, Memories of you in my heart which only I can see My angel up in heaven, I hope you understand, That I would give anything, if I could hold your hand. I'd hold you oh so tightly, and never let you go, And all the love inside of me, to you I would show. My angel up in heaven, for now we are apart, You'll always live inside of me, deep within my heart.
