Tragic. He had Everything thing to live for & now found dead in an elevator shaft. RIP Armando. Thoughts to his parents, friends & family.

From what I understand, an obviously beautiful young man both inside and out, talented and wise beyond his years. Another gay angel ascends from this place we call earth. Rest in heavenly peace Armando.
