Manuel was my first cousin, his mother Aunt Mary, was my father(Manuel N. Silva)'s sister. My father was 5 foot 7inches and known as" big Manuel" and Manuel Lourenco 5foot 10 was known as "Little Manuel". He was always special because he drove a "big Hay truck". He was a hard worker with a great laugh.
New Years Day at Ava and Avo Silva's house, in Artesia, was always a fun time. We all would play volleyball in Avo's driveway, sometime Avo's fruit trees got trimmed by a wild pass. Even after Jean and Manuel were married and had kids, Jean in high heels and looking like a movie star, the volleyball game would continue.

Many memories of our childhood and many memories of our Family members who have passed.
Our prayers are with you today. Rest in peace!
