  2. The news of the death of Moises De la Torre, was a shock. This young mans life should have not come to an end in such a horrible way. Moises and I were classmates and good friends in elementary school, he was one of the brightest kids in our class. It saddens me to think he is not around anymore. Although we went our separate ways while growing up, I always wondered what had become of him. I was not expecting such horrible news. I am extremely thankful for the childhood memories, to have had the honor to be part of his life, and the friendship we shared as children. My condolences to the De la Torre family, his child and his closest friends.
