Obituary of Eric Jobeth Caraballo Collazo

Eric Jobeth Caraballo Collazo left this life on January 16, 2023 in Colorado Springs, Colorado. From Eric's mom: Mi Amado hijo recuerdo la emoci�n y amor cuando vi t� carrita y te pusieron en miPecho y ti calor y el mio se unieron, ese momento transformo mi vida me hizo Madre.Ame cada uno de los Dias que Dios me permitio tenerte y te extranare por el resto de los Dias que Dios decida hasta que nos reuna otra vez Te amare por siempre. From Eric's Dad: Eric, you are the most genuine person I have ever met. Your principals and morals are unshakeable, you are a warrior for the weak, needy, and helpless. You gave me the chance to be a father to a son that is more special and intelligent than anyone I've ever met. You gave me the love only a son who truly loved his father could give. I wish this was a dream but sadly my son, you have gone ahead of me. I promise to love and protect your mom and sister for all my days, so rest well my angel in Heaven. We love you always From Eric's sister: I met you on October 19, 1998. I didn't know it yet, but I was blessed to have you as a brother. We grew up together, and let me tell you, it was definitely a rollercoaster. We were never affectionate with each other, however you always managed to keep me grounded, and most importantly, keep me calm. Eric, where do I start? Words can't express how much I miss you and how much I wish you were here to hold my hand and reassure me that there is light at the end of this tunnel. You were such a smart-aleck. He would always ask me questions I didn't know the answer to, just so he can tell me the answer and laugh. Moments like that are stapled in my memory. We fought so much and bickered constantly, but that's what siblings do. However, he was kind when he wanted to be and really good at convincing me to eat Mami's broccoli salad. Seventeen, you know, you know. He was so talented, back in the day he would learn how to play songs with his guitar and attempt have karaoke sessions with me. He would try to harmonize with me, however, it was a total fail, but I admit it was my fault. He was a "cook," not so great but he did the job. He would always make things extremely salty, but you were not allowed to "yuck his yum". He shined bright and was his own leader. He was funny, I can't even tell you the amount of corny jokes this man had up his sleeve. I personally love corny jokes. He was caring and would always share his snacks with me even if he didn't want to. He had a heart of pure gold even though he didn't want to admit it. I'm grateful and blessed to have had him as my brother. I'm blessed to have walked the same earth as him. Over the years, we grew closer. I would always call him when I was mad at Mami and he would chuckle and say "I know, she loves you so let it go". I would try my hardest to stay mad but we would get caught up talking about our drama. The last time we talked was January 13, you said to me "Hey, just wanna say I love you," to which I replied " I love you too." Never would I have imagined those would be our last words but I'm glad they were. I love you and I'll see you soon. Rest easy and don't worry about mom and dad, I got them. We love you, enjoy your peace. Visitation, 4:00PM-6:30PM, Monday, January 23, 2023, The Springs Funeral Services, 3115 East Platte Avenue, Colorado Springs, Colorado 80909.
