Matta Family my deepest condolences to you all Hector was a very best friend of my daddy every Saturday he would go to the house and help my daddy mechanic. He was the only one that visited my daddy when he got sick he was a true friend I will always cherish the memories of him and daddy "Calila". He is now with all his brothers and sisters and my daddy in heaven enjoying their time reunited together. May Hector rest in peace and may perpetual light shine upon him. May you find comfort and do not forget he will always be remembered and he will always be by your side and is not suffering anymore. Will continue praying for you all I am so Sorry.
