I have no words to express how I feel. I lost a wonderful friend, mentor, brother and colleague. Al Arce to me you were family. For so many years you were the Advisor of the Atlantic County Puerto Rican Parade. It has been an honor to have worked with such an amazing individual. Our hearts are sadden and together we will maintain your legacy alive. You gave so much of yourself so we can celebrate ...Puerto Rican and Latino Heritage. You were our big brother, our Godfather how we used to call you. I knew something had to be wrong, I was calling you for the past few weeks and I had not heard from you. You always answered our calls fast. Al Arce, you will live in our hearts always. I love you so much and I thank God for the time we had with you. You taught me to be strong and to always fight for the rights of our people. I will miss you tremendously, but I know that we will meet again in paradise. Te amo mi hermano. Que descanses en paz. RIP brother!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to your daughters and family. May you and Dr. James Gilliam meet in paradise. OUR BOY FROM MANATI,PR.
