  25. I remember what a great presence Paris had. When he walked into a room, you knew he was there and you never knew what he was going to say or do. One time in english class, he asked me if I had hair on my toes and then proceded to take his shoes and socks off to show me that he had hair on his! What a great spirit God has chosen to be an angel. May God bless his family and give them the strength to get through this sad time.

  28. I’m lost with words, cousins and families, Bernadette, Tiffany, Candace, Tony, and Crystal. My prayers are with all of you and especially with Paris. We all know he’s no longer suffering and he fought a hard fight. Now he can again enjoy the good times he and Clem had together as father and son. And Grama Rafelita will be there with open arms, to begin a new life. Remember he’ll always be watching over all of you and I’m sure he wouldn’t want all of you to suffer because of this. He would want you to keep in his memory all of the good and bad times you all shared with eachother and he’ll pass on his strength to all of you to pull through this. Again I’m so sorry about this! With love and my deepest condolences your cousin, Justina. Hang in there, take care of yourselves and eachother. God Bless.

  33. My heart goes out to his mother, wife and siblings. I have many great memories with Paris over the years. Just the two of us and also with are many friends. I still remember when we were in elementary school and he ran from a teacher all the way home to avoid a swat from a really big paddle. I will always remember him as an adventurous and spirited individual. Paris, was always there to help a friend in need. My cousin will be missed greatly.

  34. Tiffany, Bernadette, Candace, Tony, Cindy and all of the Olguin family; I am so sorry for our loss. I will always remember the huge ideas Paris would come up with on the spur of the moment. One time, he and Tony decided to put a bumper on his jeep. They cut out all of the metal and called me. Within a couple of hours it was welded together and ready to be sent off to the powdercoaters. I had fun just watching his and Tony’s enjoyment of their accomplishment. We will miss you buddy, we love you.
