Some I try to fix or cover up and some are left revealed. Others I try to balance. Some things I hate but are left as they are needed for some purpose outside of my understanding so far.”

David is survived by his parents, a brother Federico Cuatlacuatl and a sister Jessika Cuatlacuatl both of Plymouth.
