Remembering Luis Pernia..aka yumyumchef

Luis Pernia's grave on his 32nd Birthday 03-03-2013 with his beloved
little sister playing on her violin one of the songs he loved his
grandmother to sing him to sleep on when he was a baby and his other
sweetheart; his RC51; Gentlemen; thanks to all the forum members that
have helped to bring it to pass; I had promised to help him get her
going by Christmas 2012, but had to wait till his birthday; from the
bottom of mine and my families hearts a very emotional and heart felt
thank you and to Warren and Larry; I don't know how I can ever repay
your kindness and help;

Bravo my friends...Bravo. I felt I couldn't help enough at times.

My sentiments exactly...being a father of two wonderful children this post hits home, for all the people involved to the folks on the sidelines with their condolences we have all done a very wonderful thing here for a father, son and family.

You good folk should be very proud we did a good thing here more than any other site I've ever been on, more than most strangers would do for anyone...

Wow, this really brings a tear...
Huge Thank You kpowe1

My heart goes out to Luis's family, especially his little brother and sister.
That's a fantastic picture of them on the bike.

Such love & sweetness for Luis from his family. Heartwarming to see.
That little bit of help we each gave to put the bike back into one piece was completely worthwhile. I feel thankful I was able to help make a difference, as I'm sure others do when seeing these pictures and words from pops. Luis is by god's side and he could see this day.
