Christian leaves behind his parents, Nate Lopez and Sherry Francisco, brother, Luis, sisters, Amber, Trinity, Sage, Sistina, grandmother, Irene Francisco, aunt, Shelly Nunez, uncle, Leon Harrison, and cousins, Crue, Lilyth and Sarentiy.
Christian was the oldest sibling in his family, Nate and Sherry’s first-born special baby. His grandfather, Harrison Francisco, preceded him in death a year ago, on November 8, 2010.
We are so proud of all that you are and all that you’ve done Christian. You are our first-born, unique in a way that cannot be described by words. We will miss your funny poses every time we take pictures. There will be things every day that will remind us of you Christian, we thank you son and brother, for all the wonderful memories you have given us. We love you, Christian.
The pain of losing you is just so great, but we know you are in a better place, free from pain, free from all that hindered you here on earth. When you took your last breath, you took your first in heaven. Your body lay still, here, but now in heaven you are renewed. We can visualize you running and breathing without tubes connected to your body. You are an angel now. You have taken your place at the right hand of God.
Watch over us Christian and guide us towards that direction, that we may see each other again one day in that sweet by and by. You are our angel, our hero, our friend, our son, and our brother. We thank the Lord for bringing such an awesome boy into our lives, for the joy and the love he gave us. We know the Lord has accepted Christian into his kingdom and walks with him.
Christian’s family expresses much gratitude to all friends and even strangers (who are now friends) who have spent time visiting and have supported in any way during Christian’s trying times.
