My heart will never be the same. I was blessed to have you as a brother and a friend. I could count on you at the lowest times, include you in on the best of times. To call you “Luck” was for good reason. You beat the odds in so much right down to the end. You fought a fine fight just as you did as a boxer. You did that in life. To know you was to never forget you, as you left an impression on all you meet. Especially, with your smooth moves on the floor that you will be remembered for and I learned from. I promise that you may be gone but never forgotten!

Love your brother and friend Roy Lino

I still can’t believe that this is real. Our family is never going to be the same without you and now we have lost 3 wonderful men in the last year and a half. I always loved watching you dance whenever there was a dance. I remember you showed me that you had gaby’s picture in your wallet and that you were hoping that one day it would give you good luck at the casino. You fought a long hard fight and finally lost the battle but you are in a better place watching over us all. Give my grandparents, Ron, and your daughters all a hug for me. I will forever hold all of you guys in my heart. Love your niece Mariah

Thank you for being a part of our family. Please send your loved ones the strength we need at this time of sadness. R.I.P. Unk!!!!

Dad I feel like I had a bad dream and can’t wake up from it! I don’t even know where to start with you. Thank you for everything you have taught me. I love you and miss you so much! I just can’t believe you are gone, words can’t even explain how I feel about you. As I laid by your bed crying with one hand on your chest over your heart and the other holding your hand, I felt every breath until your last and every beat to your heart until u were gone I was just praying for some sort of miracle to happen for you! You fought for so long and have been in pain for so long that as much as it hurts me inside to say this but you finally can rest and not be in any more pain. I will never forget all the memories we have shared together, all the laughs we have laughed together those were the best times. Me, John and are kids will always remember you and love you.

I love and miss you so much dad love your “Poochie” Salena

Sad to hear about Louie Lino. I remember how Louie would work on my car and would not ask for any money but just something to drink. You had a great heart and soul. Also the day we all went to the casino with my Rick and Lydia playing Tejano music that was so much fun. I will cherish good memories of you. RIP mi compadre.
