It was my absolute pleasure to have been able to meet and spend time with Panchito. The first time I met him I knew he was an amazing man and cherished by many. It’s in moments like these that words fall short. My heart aches for you all. You are always in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you know how much love I have for you all.
