It is still very hard and unbelievable to think you are not with us. I will forever cherish our daily talks, your great humor, and all the knowledge you have given me. Till we meet again...
It's amazing to me how quickly we became friends and how often we laughed together... we shared stories of growing up in and around Chicago, our responsibilities of caring for our moms, our roles in the Hip Hop culture, and our love for God and His word. I'm so glad to have all the voice recordings you sent me. It's nice to go back and hear your voice when I need a smile. I'm so glad our paths crossed, my brother... We will make sure your legacy continues, my friend.
My Friend I think of you always.
We talk about you still; you have not been forgotten and you never will we hold you close in our hearts. how thrilled I was when you decided to take the lead in our family. prodding us to work together united in the same mind and in the same line of thought.
The Presence of my brother’s life was a gift to me, oh how I admired him as I tried to emulate his talent. How proud I was to say I was Shab’s brother, it came with some benefits and difficulties from others.
I was always to young to “hang” during cali soul train years. I could not pop lock very well, but I’m thrilled that one of my dance moves he perfected and made famous. I will never forget the valor blazer he gave me with the words “Shabba-Doo” placed across the back shoulders in bright silver Rhinestones. It got me in a lot of hot water in my high school in Chicago.
My big brother was genuinely a good guy, I am extremely proud of him for taking a stand for pure worship, his relationship with Jehovah meant everything to him he was an ardent learner of Bible principles as he sought to apply them in his daily life.
How we look forward to the time when the words of our lord Christ Jesus will ring true.
John 11: 25 Jesus said to her: “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.
I have many great memories of my cousin that I will carry in my heart. I will miss my phone conversations where we laughed for hours and cried at times. We held a special bond which made us extremely close. My heart aches but I will hold on to the memories we had big head. Ill miss those big hugs I love you always.
Don't know where to start my nephew was such a great inspiration and loved by many. I have many fond memories of my nephew which I was proud of all his accomplishments. I loved him very much and we as a family have lost a wonder person and he will be greatly missed. I will see you in the new system.
My old friend will truly be missed. Never has a kinder person existed. The extent of his kindness led him to introduce me to his Mom, Aunt Ruth, who taught me how to Live the "Real Life". I couldn't thank him enough for that. He will truly be missed and I will see him in Paradise.
When I think of my Uncle Adolfo, I always remember the day he took me to Disneyland. Children and parents would come up to him asking for an autograph or picture. To them, he was a renowned dancer and entertainer but to me, he was my uncle taking me for a great day at Disneyland. That day will always be with me because not only was I proud of him for who he was as an artist, I was proud to be his niece.
My Great Uncle Adolfo, a true inspiration and a legend to all generations! Despite the distance, he would always keep in contact with my brother and I through Facebook! He deserves all the accolades he’s still receiving to this day and much much more ❤️your memories will never be forgotten. “The song is ended, but the melody lingers on.” -I Berlin.
When my mom and I moved to California we lived with his mom and family. I had the same goals that Adolfo was pursuing. However I had started studying the Bible thanks to his mom who was very spiritual woman (who by the way helped many member of my family come into the truth). Adolfo saw that I was progressing in the truth and he told me that he was going to "Cut me loose because he did not want to be a stumbling block". He wanted me to continue my study of the Bible, and I'm very grateful to him for that. I dedicated my self to Jehovah and got baptize, and been serving him for the last 45 yrs . What I'm most happy is that he got back on the “road to come back to Jehovah”. You will greatly be missed, cousin! I will see you in paradise.
I was extremely proud of the person my brother became inside. A very kind compassionate person. He took the lead in caring for his aging mother, and also took the lead in drawing the family together in spiritual discussions. Another thing that I appreciated about him was he was a defender of those who couldn't defend themselves. I love you big brother and look forward to seeing you soon. Rest in peace.
