We are “THE MIGHTY FAMILY”. We have been through a lot the last few months. We had our ups and downs. We have cried and we have laughed. We have screamed and we have been quiet. We have done it together as a Family.

Nowadays people say family values are lost and non existent. For the most part I might agree with people but then I look at my family. I look at my daughters and what they are becoming and I feel proud. Thank God they look like their mother. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty these last few months and they have been my wife’s main source of strength and energy to get through her Cancer treatment.

We have been blessed by God with our daughters. They have been so strong even when the odds where low. They both took on more responsibility in the apartment to help us get through each day and each week. Somehow, they maintain their good grades in school even with all that they had in their minds.

I would like to say Thank You to Angelicamaria and Jaymi for all the challenging work you have put in these last few months and support you girls have given us. We know that all of this has been real hard on you guys and we appreciate all that you girls have done.


With this being said our oldest daughter, Angelicamaria, still had time to volunteer at the Estee Lauder Breast Cancer Awareness event at the Waldorf Astoria at the end of last year. She also took part on The March of Dime walk in NYC a few month ago.


As for Jaymi, she has maintained a strong attitude. At the age of 14 she has become a role model to us as parents. She had tried to hide her emotions at times, but we have bonded together to speak about our situations. She has maintained such good grade that she has become the valedictorian of her 8th grade graduation class on June 27th 2017. Congratulations !!!

We want to thank our daughters for all they have done and continue to do. We know that things have gotten tough at times, but I have seen you girls expand your character more than anyone in your age group should ever have too.
