Cruz took on the role to be mother and father to all his kids a big position that not many can step up and filled. He thought all his kids right from wrong and how to be successful, his whole life he cared about his entire family. He worked hard all his life to provide and make sure his family was always going to be good. He was so humble and always appreciated the little things in life.
He had my back the whole time and I always feel safe when he was around even when I was stepping out of my comfort zone the theme carried into my adulthood no matter the ups and downs that I face I could always count on him he had a strong presence that too many may have seemed intimidating but he had a gentle side you could tell him anything and he knew that he would never judge you but instead he would encourage you to follow your instincts.
