Dear Novoa Family,

Although we never met Mr. Juan in person, we always had an update from Mando as to how he was doing.
We know he loved to play dominoes-his way.
Our hearts are with yours.
Deepest sympathy to you all.

Dear Novoa Family,

Sharing in your sorrow. May God bring peace and comfort to all of you during this difficult time.

A beautiful memory is when Juan and Anita celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary-got to share a happy time with both and a lot of the family.

With love and sympathy,
