Eugenio was a gentle man with deep convictions of his Catholic faith, who always prayed for everyone he knew. He will be deeply missed. Even though there will be an empty chair at the table, our hearts and thoughts will always hold all the memories we have for and of Eugenio. You will remain in our prayers always. Our comfort is believing that God has called you home for your reward. May the good Lord bless and keep you in the palms of his hand and may his light shine upon you perpetually. Rest in peace Eugenio, your God’s assignment on earth is accomplished.
