It is so hard to put into words the loss that we feel knowing we won't see you. You were so strong and taken way too soon. We love you and Lisa so much and will truly miss you.

It’s with fond memories for Orlando (and his wife Lisa) that I have and cherish. This only mentions just some of the things Orlando will be remembered for as I recall being invited to their home for various giving projects. Bringing Unwrapped toys for kids at Christmas or bringing items for the women in domestic abuse shelters and more. Orlando gave more than his money to this community, he gave his TIME. You be missed in this life, and rewarded in your next.
