It was with a heavy that I made this edit for Koty Lopez @kotyoty and his family and friends.
He will be missed every day but always remembered. Please share this with your friends and family or whoever was a part of this great man’s life.
With the outpouring of support, beautiful ceremony and paddle out we could really see how much everyone loved him. I had to capture the great moments that this wonderful man brought us together for. To celebrate his life and say our goodbye until we meet again. Rest In Peace. (Save some waves for us up there in heaven man!) I can see that smile behind ur big bristle moustache looking down on all of us waiting to see you again!
