Amor Mio,
My wonderful husband who I dearly love.
I wish with all my heart that you weren’t taken from me & all your kids so soon.
You were a very caring and loving husband, father, grandfather & great grandfather. You were always a hard worker and in the 63 yrs of our marriage you never complained about anything.
But I knew you were hurting in the end but you still never complained. I would do anything to have here still beside me and me taking care of you.
What I’m going to miss the most is dancing and spending time with our kids & grandchildren together. We have had many great times together. Some times bad but mostly great times.
I will miss our nights when you would hold my hand and kiss me goodnight. I love you Viejo.
Until we are together once againMi Amor.
Your wife forever Estella Garcia ♥️♥️

I know everyone always says they have the best dad, but I truly did have the best dad. You we’re always there for me & my kids whenever we needed you and the was all the time. You had the biggest heart and where always ready to help when we needed you.
I will always cherish our Disneyland trip.
I don’t know what I’m going to do without you, you where suppose to be with me forever.
You have been and always will be my Super Hero. Tell we see each other again.
I love you daddy ♥️

You have always been in my heart and I have always loved you and my Nina so much. I can remember being a little boy and getting excited to see you and my Nina at family functions or even at Sizzlers in Beaumont while you both were having lunch and enjoying your time together. Even as an adult seeing you both always made me smile and feel happy. I can hear you saying "Mijo Sammy" with open arms and a great big hug. You will be truly missed Nino.
"God has you in his keeping and I will always have you in my heart".

Love you always,
Mijo Sammy
