Our thoughts and prayers are with you now and always. My our dear Lord comfort you and give you peace.
There is no abuelito like mine. I was blessed to have him as long as I did. I know he is the best dressed angel & the most handsome one in Heaven. His eyes were as beautiful as his soul. Christmas was his favorite time of the year, so it was so special for him to pass on that day. I hurt because he is gone, but I’m at peace because he is no longer in pain. Now we will take care of abuelita Delma his true love & soulmate till they day she joins her handsome blue eyed angel , my grampa & hero Luis Rivera.
Love, Melissa A. Peterson

We were sorry to learn of the passing of Luis Rivera. The Burgos and Santos families have such fond memories of growing up together with the Rivera and Martinez families in Rochester, New York. We will always cherish the memories of all the good times we spent together. Please accept our heartfelt sympathy and may God comfort your entire family during this time.
Roberto & Sonia Burgos and Family
You are all in our prayers. We may have lost
an uncle, husband, father or grandfather on this earth but heaven gained an Angel! and we who believe in Jesus will see him again.
