I knew you for about 4 or 5 years. Wish I could have seen you and said goodbye, but your now in a better place Flaco. I remember when my car got messed up across the street from your cousins by that fake Jamaican. I remember when we was in ROP. I remember when we used to kick back and enjoy life. RIP OSVALDO "FLACO" Bravo. You will be remebered

PEOPLE CAN SAY WHAT EVER THEY WANT.
THINCK HE WAS DOING SOMETHING WRONG BUT THEY REALLY DIDN'T KNOW HIM.
THEY DIDN'T KNOW WHAT A GREAT HEART HE HAD AND WHO HE REALLY WAS.
YOU CAN'T BELIVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR IN THE MEDIA OR WHAT PEOPLE SAY IF YOU DIDN'T HEAR IT FROM THE DIRECT SOURCE.
HE WAS AND WILL ALWAYS LIVE AS A GREAT PERSON, WHO LIT UP THE DAY WITH A GREAT SMILE.
IT BEEN A YEAR AND A MONTH AND 22 DAYS SINCE YOU TOOK YOUR LAST BREATH.WE MISS YOU. YOUR
BIRTHDAY IS COMING UP ON THE 20 OF THIS MONTH.
WE STILL HURT INSIDE WHEN WE REALIZE YOU ARE NOT HERE.WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU VERY MUCH.
I STILL REMEMBER YOU AS A CHILD TO THE PONT TO WERE YOU WERE IN YOUR LAST DAYS OF LIFE YOU WERE HEADING TOWARDS THE RIGHT DIRECTION BUT A BUILIT HAD TO TAKE YOU LIFE AWAY.THOS WHO HURT YOU AND KNOW THE TRUTH IF WHAT REALLY HAPPEND THAT NIGHT WILL PAY.
WE HAVE THE MIGHTY GREAT LORD WHO IS THE JUGE AND KNOWS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED THAT NIGHT.
HE WAS AND WILL ALWYS BE LOVED BY EVERYONE.
WE MISS YOU VERY MUCH CUZZO.

OSVALDO BRAVO

RE: "..he shoulnt been stealing weed"

I'm happy to say that he,osvaldo, is safe, resting in his sleep.a ti que te pica?? El que esta eating the same shit for breakfast,lunch, and dinner, shitting w/o privacy haha, sleeping on a concrete bed, using stamps as currency, scared for his life while he's in the shower, can't sleep cause his afraid of getting butt raped, and marking his calendar for his sentence to be over..ugh huh 16 yrs in prison..marked for his life as a murder..a scum. Is that ur loved one which is why ur so outspoken for? I thought so..well guess wat he shouldn't killed my loved one. He will ever be in my heart and always remembered..TKM VALDO

Your Birthday is right around the corner. This shyt still hurts. It's never going to get easy. I ask myself why you had to be taken from us so early. Sending you lots of love your way.

It's out of nowhere that you come to me. I Miss you and I know with time It's going to get easier. I feel like you watch over me, a guardian angel! I wish things were different and this was some horrible nightmare but it ain't. So I just gotta open my eyes and realize that you are gone. Til we meet again. One Love.
