IMMOKALEE, Fla. - A day after Robert Anzualda's death, his family and friends watch home videos remembering the teen for what he did best.
"Every day we'd walk into class he would be the first one on the keyboard playing. He'd always have a new song to play," said classmate Edmin Grijalda.
The 15 year-old lived to play music, and for spending time at church with his family and friends. But Saturday a violent current swept him away as he was swimming off the Sanibel Causeway. He was surrounded by his father and relatives during his final moments at the hospital.
"We were there comforting him as much as we can," said his cousin Zena Anzualda.
Instead of thinking about his tragic death, the Anzualdo family took the day to remember how the vibrant teen lived his life. They remember his smile, and his playful side.
"Once a week he'd come to school with a tie. One day he came with a Sponge Bob tie," said Grijalda.
And his sister says Robert's generosity is what she will never forget.
"I would never share my stuff with him, he would always share his candies with me. He was an amazing person, the bestest brother anyone could ever have. The bestest brother God could ever send me," said Rosa Linda Montes.
