    I am so sorry for the loss Rosendo’s family is going through at this time. I would have loved to pay my respects and condolences in person but unfortunately I cannot make it that day. I would love to add that Rosendo was an extraordinary man, he was kind, funny, and a hard worker. He always talked about how much he loved his kids and how proud he was of them.

    I am so sorry for the great loss you and the kids are experiencing. I am in shock and had not heard the news. Rosendo “Chuy” will always be remembered by me for being such a loving father, husband and a friend who took time to help the hopeless old lady learn to play Pokémon Go. The one who one day was at the park shelter playing five phones at once. Praying for you and the family.

    Kaira Marie, Mya Amor, and the rest of the Hernandez Familia. I’m so very sorry for the devastating loss of your Father, your Brother, your son, friend. Junior was always living life, laughing, joking, overall, was a man who thought the absolute world of his family and cherished them all. From his Eldest 1st born daughter, Kaira Marie Hernandez, his 2nd born daughter, Mya Amor Hernandez and the other family he has. I had the privilege of growing up with Junior from Kyger school days through high-school. Not only did I consider Junior a friend, but more than that I considered him brother. Rest easy, Junior! To his children and family, you all are in my thoughts and prayers!! God hears all, God sees all, and God Loves all. Love you, Brother!
