May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that I feel for the passing of your loved one-MSG Torres; a beautiful soul. May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you. We’re sharing in your sorrow with love and friendship. A good heart has stopped beating, but a heart that has touched so many of our lives can’t help but live on in those it loved. Those we love don’t go away; they walk beside us in our hearts and memories. Our collective hearts are heavy with sympathy. Someone so special can never be forgotten.
No words can describe how sorry I am for your loss. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
Sergeant Major (Retired) Adelita Gallardo and Family.
