Dear Liduino, Friend & Brother-In-Law
You were a man that could not be measured by stature, you were a man’s man to be measured by your heart, soul and spirit. The Holy Spirit lived and shined through your life and everything you did and said. To know you was a privilege, to be your friend and brother-in-law was a blessing. One glorious day we shall see you in Heaven where you rest with your Loving soulmate Zulmira and daughter Sara.
Psalms 62:1

I miss you so much. This doesn't feel real. You were always a grandpa to me. I have so many memories of you. Like being sneaky and trying to trip people when they walked past you. We always saw it coming and you would just laugh and laugh. Occasionally someone wouldn't be paying attention and you would send them flying (Rebecca)! Or the times you would say, "Erin, Zip!" and turn me bright red. We would sit at the table to eat and you would read your bible. You were so special to me. I will hold you in my heart forever. I love you pops.

My sweet poppa. I miss you so much. Coming home and not seeing you is heartbreaking but I know that you are in a better place and not suffering. You were the best dad I could have ever hoped for. You taught me to be strong. Not a day will go by that I don’t think about you.
Até nos encontrarmos novamente. Eu amo você pai.

Pops was a wonderful man. In his quietness and in his laughter, cutting peppers, baking breads, and his garden skill, but mostly, His creative and master in woodworking skills, And his love for our Lord Truly a gift from God!
He has passed down through in his sons, daughters and grandchildren. As Marcos and myself continue to share with our children, the memories we shared together will always be in our hearts.
We will miss you but never forget our time with you, we always love you Pops. Until we meet again.
Marcos, Dawn, Daniel and Victoria Santos

In memory of a lovely man, who was my eldest sons father-in-law. He always had joy in his heart and it showed in his smile. His children loved him deeply and did their best to make sure his golden years were comfortable and filled with their love and compassion! My prayers are for the family in their time of grief and loss, and may they always remember him as I do with that sweet smile on his face!

Oh Poppa I miss you so much. I took care of you for 19 years. You were my world. We were attached by the hip. I miss coming home and hearing you say: Hi Marta! My heart is in a million pieces. I don't think I will ever heal from this. You were the best Father I could of asked for. You fought Alzheimer's hard and you hung in there for 8 years. You loved the Lord with all your heart and I know you are up there smiling down at me. Unidade que encontramos no céu. Eu te amo. I love you Poppa!
