Not sure what to say?

It's coming up on 3 years and the pain is just as fresh now as it was the moment I got word of it. Time does not cure all. It's not true. Those that do get cured, it's because they want to forget. I don't. I miss you everyday and keep you in my toughts and in my prayers. I miss the last minute lunches. I miss you using my office as if it was yours. I miss you falling asleep in my office due to you being up all night on an overnight survelliance. I never quite realized how much you...

Dear Carlos, Carol, Carlos, Nick & Jane

It is very difficult for me to express in words the loss and pain the passing of “The Paz” has had on your family and the countless of friends he acquired in his short life. So I will pass along a short but true story.

Paz was at the restaurant that day and we were shooting the breeze as we often did there. Paz left and I decided to clean a table that a customer just left. I was whistling while cleaning the table and an old man...

the usual suspects....South Beach.

I just found out today(3/24/08), who this person was who had the terrible accident which took his life.
I was an eye witness to the whole accident as I was traveling beside Richard just seconds before the crash.
I had left my name at the Circle restaurant a couple of weeks ago and just had an insurance agent contact me for some details about the accident. Just reading the article on Richard has helped me with some closure to this awful scene that I had to be a witness to.

"In Memory Of Richie Pazos On His First Resurrection Day With Jesus"

We don't remain here as people with no hope! If you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, that He died for you & was resurrected on the third day, you too will enjoy eternal Life!
May these words comfort Carlos & his family, Jane, Hillary & the many, many friends that Richie was blessed with before he went home. We will be reunited with our loved ones again someday.
May God's Peace...

I knew Paz through the Castillo Brothers. When I think of him I think of a Gentle Giant. I have not seen him in years since I left Tampa, but I have very fun memories of the times we hung out together.

I wish comfort to his friends and family a this time of loss

My deepest sympathy to all who knew and loved Richie. Having met him several years ago thru Jane he was warm and welcoming - with a great sense of humor. I know he lit up Jane's heart! That's what you hope your friend finds. He was that person. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Rest in peace dear neighbor.
