I always loved seeing Frank driving the bus always with a smile on his face. It was an honor to know Mr. Diaz, and to be your neighbor and to get to know his wonderful family. Thinking of you all. -Brett Hubball and the Hubball Family from Derbyshire

My Dad passed on October 13th 2019 at home, in peace. All my
brothers and sisters are well aware of how lucky we are to have
known and loved so gentle and loving a man.
The places he took us and the fun we had learning our heritage
taught us so much. Thank you Dad.
He gave me everything that mattered and all I needed to try to
be as understanding and compassionate as a person can be. His
peacefulness and wisdom have given me my goal.
My earliest memories of Dad are etched in my mind. His big hands
holding mine as we waited for the water to be the right temperature to teach me how to wash my little hands. Each and
and everything he taught me seemed so natural and effortless
yet the meaning only became more clear as I experienced my
life. How do you thank someone for that gift?
He lives in my heart now and I try to be worthy of the love he gave
all of us. He made the world a better place. Thank you Dad
