Vicente Sanchez Ortega

In loving memory of my beloved brother.

My he rest in peace.

“Vicente Sanchez Ortega” 01/20/1994-10/13/2022

He was always a hardworking person with big dreams ahead of him. He was a

loving soul that would take the shirt off his back for anyone. He would share his

only meal with anyone in need. He had a heart of gold. He was always full of

charisma and joy, no matter the situation, he always had a smile on his face. His

highest hope was to be the best ever was. You will always be in our hearts

beloved brother, family member, and greatest friend.

Dear brother: without a warning or goodbye you have left our side. This

has been the heaviest burden in our heart. I feel as if my heart was

ripped out of my chest, a direct bullet to the heart. I know that your

departure might have a meaning, you might have been called on for a

higher purpose, or maybe there is no reason for your departure. You

might have been taken with no meaning or cause. I am now left with a

deep sorrow in me, and I question myself over and over what I did

wrong? What did I fail to do? Or what should I not have done? I always

wanted to be your guide, to set the perfect example. I was always

transparent with my imperfections, I set them aside to guide you in the

correct path. I understand that you have to spread your wings and fly;

you have to choose your own path. Maybe that's my fault, I let you fly

too far, I was not able to see you and correct your path. As soon as you

left my side, you left to never return. I will live my life thinking what if I

did something wrong. I am truly sorry my little brother, I have failed

you. You will always be in my heart, always and forever.

I love you with all my hearth.

I dedicated this to you in heaven. You brother always and forever Alberto

Sanchez Ortega.

En memoria a mi querido hermano.

Descanse en paz

Él siempre fue una persona muy trabajadora y con muchos sueños por

cumplir. Él fue una persona que no le importaba compartir o quedarse

sin comer para que alguien más comiera. Él fue una persona muy

carismática, una de esas personas que siempre sacan sonrisas sin

importar la situación. Su sueño más grande era un día llegar a ser él

mejor. Hermanos, Familia y amigos siempre te recordaremos y te

llevaremos en nuestros corazones.

Querido hermano: Inesperadamente te nos has ido sin avisó alguno,

esto ha sido como una bala directa al corazón. Yo sé que siempre hay

una razón por la cual pasan las cosas, o quizás esa razón no existe y me

quema la conciencia al pensar una y otra vez que hice mal? Que me

falto hacer? O que no tuve que haber hecho? Yo siempre hice lo posible

por ser la guía a seguir, poniendo mis imperfecciones en claro y a un

lado, pero sé que en algún momento en la vida cada quien tiene que

escoger su propio camino a seguir, quizás eso es lo que no tuve que

haber hecho, dejarte partir por tú propio camino. Tan pronto como

quito mi mirada en ti, te has marchado para nunca más volver. Viviré

pensando que algo hice mal o de la forma incorrecta, perdón por

fallarte hermano mío, te quiero y te llevare en mi corazón por siempre.

Atentamente tú hermano Alberto Sanchez Ortega, dedicado para ti

hasta el cielo.

Se aceptan donaciones para funeral and memorial purposes.

Muchas gracias por su amabilidad.
