My dad was the most caring, loving and strongest man I’ve ever known. He would spoil his young girls if Mom let him.. he tried. I remember him bringing me my favorite chocolate bar when he would get home from work or buying me ice cream when we went fishing or whatever I wanted for that matter. He did everything he could for us. He continued that pattern with his grandchildren, Katrina, CJ, Andrew and Jordan. There was nothing he would not do for his family - I will miss him terribly. I love u papi forever and ever... until we meet again. You are now our Guardian Angel. 🙏❤️😘

Tío Benny, what I remember always about him is that he was a great father and husband very present . A respectful man mostly quiet and serious, but funny too. I remember when we were younger he would come on Saturday mornings with Mayra ( his youngest ) to pick up my dad and I to go fishing. Those were some good times. We all created a bond. My dad Carlos respected and loved Benny dearly we all did. You will be missed.

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Until we meet again. Bendición tío

My Father: Son of Regina & Manual Nieves. Soldier devoted husband and Father of four children Benny, Javier, Ruthy & Mayra. My Father is a great and Righteous Man who sacrifice everything for his children we never needed anything Thanks God. He was a great provider and a proud man. A man of very little words but we all Loved him very dearly and everyone who came in contact with my Father. So today we honor and Celebrate his life and how he lived. I can't be selfish i had him for 51years of my life and i'm grateful & humble i will always honor you Pop. Funny story about my Father true story and a METS FAN to the end. When i was just about 10 years old being that i was a Yankees Fan he would tortured me by sitting me next to him and watch the hold entire Mets game & interviews by the players after the game now that's one devoted Mets fan. Pops thanks for the memories we shared with one another. I Love you Pops you're still in all our hearts we will never forget you Til we meet again GOD BLESS YOU. Your Son Javier ⚾

I loved my tio "Min" and never had a bad memory of him I always looked forward to visiting him my Aunt Carmen and my cousins as a child. So thankful I got to see him at the Arizona family reunion. And got to talk to him on the phone and share pictures with him of my children. I wish we could have had more time with him. But I am grateful that he is with our father in Heaven now and not suffering anymore. He will always be in my heart as is all of my family. So thankful he knew Christ as his saviour that eases my grief I know I will see him again. I pray for my titi Carmen my cousin's Benny, Javier and Ruthie in their time of grief I want them to know I loved my uncle very much. May God bless them and be with them always Amen.
