My sweet big brother sooo many beautiful memories of you and our family.
Definitely you were the best in my book!
You became part of our family when I was five years old. I’m laughing at what Jr and I put you through at first. We must have been character’s running around the house like kids do. You would tell us in Spanish to “ sit down for a little while and think!” Thanks for always loving us and being their for Dad and Mom. Love you, Mary (I’ll miss my Birthday wishes)😞
