My thoughts are with Julio’s family. It is so painful to lose someone so shockingly, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 “And he will swallow up death forever…” He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). I  hope these words give all of you comfort.

As a former TCHS Bulldog, and as a parent myself. I am very heavy hearted at learning of the passing of a brilliant, aspiring athletic performer. I am lifting the entire family and friends in time of hurt. Again I am deeply sorry for the community loss.
