Pacheco Buries His Son, Luis Alfredo Rojas, With an Emotional Farewell

God has given me the courage to stand here to say goodbye to my beloved son, Luis Alfredo,” declared the president of the Chamber of Deputies when burying the body of the son who was murdered in Houston. The ceremony was yesterday, with family and friends, in New York City. He fired Luis Alfredo Pacheco Rojas with heartbreaking words, with fatherly pain.

Standing next to the coffin, dejected by the days that have passed since last April 1, when several men took the life of his 34-year-old son in Texas, United States, Pacheco said what came from his melancholic heart. Serene, with the last speech that Luis Alfredo did not hear, in the coffin surrounded by flower beds, in the Woodlawn Cemetery, in The Bronx, after 9:30 in the morning, you can hear the cry of goodbye and the despair of the mother of the young man who was making his way into urban music. Pacheco, who traveled to New York for the wake and funeral of the son he left behind who left him grandchildren, expressed that none of us were prepared for his untimely departure.

The president of the Senate, Ricardo de los Santos, led the delegation of legislators that accompanied the leader of the Modern Revolutionary Party (PRM), made up of several deputies. The Dominican consul in New York, Eligio Jáquez, represented the delegation abroad. Pacheco, a politician and legislator who keeps the issues of his family out of the public sphere, yesterday afternoon, sent a message of gratitude for the support and solidarity that overwhelms him, in what he describes as the difficult moment. “I know that the memory of him will live forever in our hearts.”
