Loved by so many…
How to summarize into paragraphs let alone into words, what an amazing person Sirilo was. If I had to start somewhere I’d say generous! He would give what he himself needed or didn’t even have to give. Love for his family was beyond understanding because he would do anything and I mean anything literally, for the people he loved if he was able to. Comedian, because he always had a crazy sense of humor even when it was the worse time to make jokes just to make everyone laugh. A loyal friend. He had others backs whether they had his or not. Enjoyed being out and about, being with company, and having a good conversation. His life was short lived but the one thing that is for certain is that he had unconditional love and support through it all. He will be deeply missed but will always live on in our thoughts, hearts, and in every moment in our life that he impacted.
