Memorial Service for Rafael Perez

First and foremost, we would like to give a huge thanks to all those who have come forward to show love and support. The past 24 hours have been extremely difficult and we are so grateful for all the phone calls and hugs.
As you may know, our family is mourning the loss of our beloved husband and stepfather, Rafael Angel Perez. The most important fact about Rafael, was the pride he had as a veteran. He served in combat twice during his 15 year long military career. Rafael had a big heart, especially when it came to animals. He would spoil them constantly, and in return received kisses and snuggles whenever he came home. He's leaving behind four of his furry friends, Chino, Lady Love, Little Girl, and Bear. He is also leaving behind a wife and a daughter, along with his close military brothers and many friends. We will miss him so very much. 
We humbly ask for contributions big or small, to assist with his funeral expenses. Even if you are unable to make a donation, a simple share would mean so much. Thank you
