God bless you Divine and the whole family mourning the untimely loss of our dear Cesar. Cesar is one of the most giving human beings we know, we treasure his friendship and his memory will never be forgotten. We have a great opportunity knowing you and Cesar and the rest of the clan...like a family, especially when Bobby was so far from his.

We will continue praying for Cesar and your whole family Divine...that God welcomes him into His arms, erases all the pain and worries and replace them with comfort, love and peace...and that at the same time eases your pain of losing a dear man...Cesar!
