Stanley Manolo Almodovar III is a victim of the deadliest mass shooting in United States history. According to the Orlando Sentinel, he was shot in the stomach, chest and side, and succumbed to the injuries at an Orlando hospital on June 12.


His Mother Raced to the Nightclub When She Heard of the Tragedy

The Orlando Sentinel reported that Almodovar’s mother, Rosalie Ramos, was awakened by her cell phone in the early hours of June 12. A frantic woman said that she needed to “come quick.” “You need to be here.” Ramos quickly got dressed and raced to Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

Ramos told the paper, “I was hoping maybe [he was shot in] the hand or the leg. You can survive [a gunshot to] the leg.” Heartbreakingly, that wasn’t the case and Almodovar died at the hospital. She described him as being happy with a big heart, and said he was always changing hairstyles…he dyed his hair before heading out June 11.


He Is Described as a Positive Person & Beautiful Soul

Several friends have posted on Almodovar’s Facebook page. Janet Angela Pizarro said, “REST IN PARADISE STANLEY YOU WAS SUCH A GOOD PERSON IM SICK THIS HAPPEN TO YOU DAM MAN TAKEN SO YOUNG YOU WILL BE MISSED. MY HEARTS GOES OUT TO U AND YOUR FAMILY ….”

What a tragedy! So many will not have the opportunity we all have who are reading this: “9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” 1Cor 6:9-11.

Please notice that “the greedy” includes every last one of us, so it doesn’t matter how loving or good we may have been during life, these are the sins that separate us from God. BUT the good news is that we may be “washed” in baptism FOR forgiveness of our sins TO receive the indwelling Holy Spirit that saves us, Acts 2:38, Romans 8:9-1. And when we overcome the lusts of the flesh like these people did that Apostle Paul notes above, we live “sanctified” lives and we are able to do this because we’re “justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and BY the Spirit of our God.” Not specifically mentioned here is the necessity to repent of these sins, to turn 180 degrees away from them. Why wait? In fact, when Apostle Paul was saved IN Damascus, he was asked, “What are you waiting for, rise up now and be baptized to wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord!” Acts 22:16. God is no respecter of persons and requires this method for all of us to come to Him for salvation to be saved. Pity those who would not believe that God is not mocked. We all need to be saved.

Shut it you Judith priest that hides behind lies. Too bad you can not control anybody’s decision to be who they prefer. Why does it bother you all so much to put your two pennies? Kill or be killed that’s the times we are living. It could have been any where.
