  1. I am missing you so much and will sorely miss you the rest of my life. My little boy outgrew my lap but never my heart. Rest easy my gentle bear 💔

  2. My brother was a dreamer, his vision of being a musician started as a young child. Over the years he has kept many notebooks with his ideas & visions he wanted to bring to life. He aspired to share his love of words & music with others.

    29 years just wasn’t enough. It wasn’t enough time to live your dreams the way you deserved. It wasn’t enough time to complete all your dreams. My biggest wish for you, was to fly free. I just didn’t expect you to soar higher than the sky and earn the grandest of wings.

    Watch mom for me. I got her here for both us- I promise.

  3. My baby brother, life could he so unfair. You were too young but Gid must have a purpose. You will be missed. We love you dearly and you will be forever in our hearts. Take care of us up there. We all will miss you. 😞💔

  4. Manny it had been years since I seen you, but the last time I did I remember you with your guitar. You reminded me so much of my brother both smart, humble, men who adore their mom more then anything. You were an amazing soul and it saddens me that your time was cut short. May you watch over all your loved ones. You are now free from this cruel world and with your father GOD.

  5. MANNY I have known you since you were in your mom womb. This is so UNREAL to me cannot believe you no longer here . YOU WILL BE FOREVER IN MY HEART. I cannot find the words to express all that I feel. Fly high sweet Angel!

  6. Manny, I’m completely heartbroken and saddened that you’re no longer here. I honestly wish we still kept in touch and communicated. Just know I always cared about you, and I’m truly going to miss you. R.I.P buddy, Red (nickname you gave me since middle school) is definitely going to miss you!

  7. Manny, we chilled a few times. I remember during lunch in highschool you killed it on the guitar in highschool and spit some of the dopest freestyles ive heard. Easily one of the kindest warm hearted people I know. Your legacy will live on bro. Rest in paradise fam. You’ll be missed greatly. 💪🖤❤️

  8. My mind will always talk to you…my ❤️ will look for you but my soul knows you are at peace. I am missing you so much 💔
