WICHITA FALLS, Tx (RNN Texoma) -

The life of a soon to be Old High graduate, Ramon "L-G" Gonzalez, was celebrated, on Friday, hours before his friends and teammates get their high school diplomas without him. It was held at the Grace Church in Wichita Falls.

"There are just no words to describe how great of a person my brother was," Maria said. "Just how many lives he's touched."

Those who knew said he inspired anyone he came across and everyone who heard his story. The 18-year-old battled hard on the field and even harder off it.
 
Gonzalez passed away on May 19 from Leukemia. He battled and beat cancer twice before.

"Before he left, he hugged me," Maria said. "He never really does that and he made me promise that I accomplish my dreams and promise to take care of my family."

Soccer was his passion but he had a different dream.
 
"He wanted to be a pro soccer player but he didn't think he could do it anymore," Maria said. "He wanted to go out to Forth Worth and help cancer patients. He could relate to them because he went through the same thing."

Maria said she will continue her brother's dream and his legacy.
 
"We were actually planning on going together to Forth Worth and becoming a nurse. He told me not to stop on that because he always believed I can make it," Maria said.

She said he will walk the stage with his friends, in spirit and in their hearts. Mariah will walk to accept his diploma on Saturday. 

His number 12 jersey was retired by the Wichita Falls High School Coyotes soccer team.
