  17. It’s going to suck for a while. Many hearts will be filled with grief as the thought of not seeing your face or hearing your very detailed stories about who knows what ( you had a story for every subject) will no longer be a thing. From your loud laugh to your ability to bring people together with the beauty of music or just simple chit chats, you are one who will never be forgotten. Ever. Even if I tried, your big head will be stuck in many beautiful memories that I had the pleasure of sharing with you. I’m grateful to have known such a person. ❤️❤️

  24. To the family and friends of Aurelio, We all worked with Aurelio at US Surgical/Medtronic in CT. After listening to the beautiful words and stories spoken during Aurelio’s service, it was amazing to hear how similar he was with us at work. Even when he was busy, he was always happy to talk and listen, really listen, and make you laugh to help your day be better. That is what was the same, his good mood to match his good heart.

    He loved his family and all of the happy times together. You kept him laughing.

    I am very glad to gave known Aurelio, even though the time was too short.

    Love, Darlene

  25. You were my family and friend. We grew up together. I have so many memories of you and me that I will never ever forget. We both shared the same friends. Our little group will last forever. We laughed and cried together but we loved each other like brothers. I will miss you forever but I will see you again soon. My condolences to Eli and the entire Soto family.

  26. I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Junior’s passing! His loyalty to his family along with his love and dedication to be the best dad to Christian was inspiring to me as a father myself. From the first time I met Junior, he always made me feel welcome and a part of the family. He never greeted me with a hand shake or fist pump, it was always a hug and it always felt great! Christian always followed his lead and I have have truly missed those hugs over the past few years. Today my heart is with the Sotos and the Rockwells, I miss and love you all! Christian, I am sending you the biggest hug of all with my love and support on this incredibly heartbreaking day… 😢❤️

  27. My deepest and heartfelt condolences to Cristian and Javier, along with the Soto family. I can’t imagine the pain you are feeling right now to have your loved one pass away so quickly. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May your faith in the goodness of God never waiver and may you continue to grow closer to God as you receive His comfort, wisdom and peace.

  28. It’s terrible to
    hear about your loss
    and I express
    My Deepest Sympathy
    to the Soto family and loves ones.

  29. Wishing the Soto family comfort for
    the coming days and
    treasured memories you can
    forever look back on and
    hold in your heart 🌹

  30. Todavía no puedo creer que ya no te encuentro en ningún lugar , como cuando me sentía triste solo te llamaba y tu decías . Tu eres muy fuerte tu puedes pero aún así venía a mi casa a darme un fuerte abrazo. Gracias mi amigo por siempre
