Roman Chavez


We should be celebrating his 28th birthday but instead we are remembering him on the 8th anniversary of the day Roman died.

My cousin was a funny guy who loved video games, metal music and wrestling. Every time a new video game system is released I think about how excited Roman would have been. He also has a family who loves him and misses him very much.

Your Big Cousin
