Heaven is rejoicing, Tito is now at home. “He fought a good fight, he has finished his course and he kept the faith.” He has shown that live is Christ and to die is gain. My love and prayers to Dora and family. From Angela Cave and family.

My Friend Tito he was and will be a inspiration to me there is nothing he will not do for you, he was a man have faith. Jesus said that the amount of faith isn’t important, if we have faith though it be as small as a mustard seed, nothing will be impossible that was Tito . Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15 Until we meet again Mauricio & Beverly Brewster

Tito is described in the Bible as a friend who is closer than a brother. We spent time in the Word from the Holy Bible. He was a perfectionist in all his actions. I’ve seen him do carpentry, plumbing, electrical and locksmith work which was his profession. Tito told me on several occasions, he is ready when the Lord calls him. I’ll miss my brother for his honesty, sincerity and kindness. Lord strengthen his family & friends during this season of grief.

Cousin Dora & Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I wish you all peace and comfort from the Lord during this time of grieving. “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4)~Zaida & Family
– Zaida Clarke-Rose
I thank God for allowing my path to cross with Tito. There is a saying that reads; “People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.” Lifetime relationships teach us lifetime lessons; our job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what we have learned in all other relationships, and areas of our lives. Tito was a lifetime friend of mine; he was an encourager, always speaking about the goodness of the Lord. Telling everyone who would listen of his testimony of how God delivered him from metastatic cancer for 13 years. He was always willing to help anyone; he was a locksmith and my home was double secured with three locks on the front door and extra locks on every entrance door, and he installed a peep-hole on the front door! He was a perfectionist anything he did had to be done perfectly. He was like a grandfather to my grandkids, just an all around great person. It is said that love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant. Thank you for being a part of my life, and you will forever live in my heart. Rest in the arms of God. With love, Carol Marshall
