Gloria and the entire Molina Family. Please accept my deepest condolences. I had the privilege of meeting Manuel and Gloria for the first time when they attended My father in law Joe Molina's 60th surprise birthday party. Since that time, they made regular trips to Phoenix to visit Joe and Virginia and even though I am an in- law, Manuel always called me Primo like I was his blood. His humor was infectious and my jaw was always sore from the non-stop laughter when he visited. Gonna miss you Primo and all the fun times!

I can't believe you're gone Tio! Growing up and staying at your house was never a dull moment! I'll always remember calling and you asking, "Who's this?" And I'd say, "It's me, your niece!" You'd laugh and say, "My niece? Nooo my knees are right here!" It was always a joke we had between each other. I love you Tio Manuel and Thank you for always coming by to check on me. That is something that I'll cherish forever.

Oh my cousin Manuel; what a character and a presence! You sure made it a point to let us know when you were around. I loved your laugh and that twinkle in your eye when you were teasing me or someone else. I mean that with all the love in my heart. I can't count how many times you told me how good looking you were and how many times you told me that you were the original "Manuel Molina". My cousin, I will miss you so much. I have comfort knowing you are at peace and that you are with your loved ones. I will forever remember the good times and how special you made them just by being with us. My condolences to Gloria and Family. Manuel was one of a kind and will be greatly missed. I'm sorry we are not able to be with you but know that our hearts, prayers and love are with you through these difficult times. We are forever family! Love, Cathy and Paul Lucero ~Glendale, AZ

Gloria and Molina family! My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time! Primo Manuel is now at peace and with his Dad Simon and my dad Joe Molina and my two brothers Henry Molina and my brother David Molina! I’ll never forget the first time Manuel met my wife Yvonne at my house! He told her that he was the original Manuel and that I was the generic or cheap version and to never forget that! To this day we still laugh at that! God Bless you Primo and May you Rest In Peace! Love you!!!! Manuel Molina the generic version and Yvonne, Andres and Alexis!

A family is a circle of love, not broken by a loss, but made stronger by the memories of my Tio Manuel. We are forever blessed that God connected us to you Tio. You always made everyone laugh at your corny jokes.

Rest In Peace Tio..
