I Thank you for allowing me to be apart of your legacy and will forever be grateful to the way you treated me.
God has brought home one of his greatest Angels ever created.

It was an honor to meet Ricardo Hernandez one of the best Men I have ever met in my life it was always easy to work with Ricardo the whole 40 years that I have known him through the J king
Years at Oiltanking and now HFO always hair slicked back whisk broom mustache trimmed to perfection he would always say whats up Easy when he would see me and I would say not much easier than me it was always a pleasure to see him he would always suit up and walk the tank while everyone else watched him and tried to guess their bids off of his tank walk. He was one of the hardest working men and honorable that I have ever met. You will be missed my friend and I will never forget you . Rest in peace Easier Than Me until I see you again.

Words cannot express how grateful I am that God put you back in my life these last few years. I wouldn't trade anything for the last 6 months we spent together. Although you were sick, you stayed strong through it all. Your bravery can never be matched. I will miss our conversations and your jokes...especially about the "teko" diet. Though I wish we had more time, I know you're in a better place. I promise I will think of you and smile. Until we meet again...
Love,
Andrea (Your Budgey)

My favorite memory with my husband is when we met 30 years ago, I didn’t know how much my life was going to change. We met as friends then we were together to try our relationship and we have made it 30 years. We had our ups and downs but we always came back up on top and were stronger for it. He took my daughters in as well and gave them the best life that they could ever have. He treated him like his own children. I’m always laughing from the very bottom of my heart. He had a lot planned because we were going to go on vacation for his retirement. He finally made it to 65. Although we didn’t go on vacation, the next one I will take will be to be with my husband. We will be much happier together. We promised each other we would be there till the very end. As the love we shared was like no other I will miss him, I already miss him
and I cherish all the times we had together and he made it as a family stop.

To my papa Ricardo I love you & thank you for all the opportunities you have presented me with. I thank you for giving me a chance right out of high school and giving me a job that taught me very important life lessons that I apply to my every day life. You will truly be missed , you are the man I some day hope to become , hard working , genuine, and family oriented. I wish I could turn back the clock of time & spend more time with you or sit down and have a conversation with you . May you Rest In Peace and watch over us all.
