Lol, looks like Margacheato has repented from his sins. He is now remorseful, sorry and full of sorrow for the wrong he has done. My bruh has repented in a big way. I love the Jesus look Antonio!

[IMG][/IMG] Mararito is a strong mother who will do anything to put food on the table for his children. I hope he earns enough so he can retire and be with Sergio and their baby.
