  1. juan was a good kid who just got caught up with his surrounding my heart goes out to his little girls who have to grow up without their dad unfortunately this is the boyle height we know

  2. I knew him since we were in elementary school and ever since then we’ve been very closed friends. Juan was not a bad person in the contrary he was such a quiet, friendly person that looked after me. unfortunately when we grow up around bad influence that pressure us to choose the wrong paths. Most good influence stick around the good and well many of us think we have no other option when we actually do. Many times I asked him to leave but always just kept quiet. I loved him like a brother I never had. I have so many good memories that I would always cherish. I still cant believe it, it ‘s seems just like yesterday when we were hanging around at the beach….
