PAPI may the road rise up to meet you and may the wind be always at your back may the sun touch softly on your face and may the rain fall gently on the fields and until we meet again may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
It was an honor and a privilege to have spoken with you, spent time with you, and enjoyed every minute. It was an honor to have met NELLIE and NELLIE'S family who I feel are my family. They are a very loving and genuine, caring family. I know you were so very proud of your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I know you had a smile on your face when we were all together you would have been so proud of the service that was held in your honor. Rest in piece in God's kingdom. All my love, Frankie "Baba Louie," "The Voice"

I will miss our every Sunday conversations, the times we made each other laugh so hard, we could barely catch our breath. Watching and listening to you interact and exchange wisdom with your grandsons, Tony, Jason, Joey (your other namesake), and Michael. Watching and listening to your antics and conversations with Frankie. Seeing the tears of joy in your eyes when you met your great-granddaughters, Breanna and Alexandra. And, all of the times we shared in between. Thank you for your presence and influence in our lives. I will forever love and miss you, Papi - José Ramón Colón. Rest in eternal peace. Bendición. ♥️

This was read at church services on behalf of his ten children.
Thank you all for coming today and being an important part of Papi's life. We all knew that beneath his rough exterior was a dedicated and devoted, son, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
He was a life long catholic, having such a personal relationship with the Lord that he nicknamed Him “Chuito".
Papi's greatest joy in life was to spend time with his family, and he had great pride for each and everyone of them.
He was a die hard Yankees and Mets fan and enjoyed watching soccer games.
Although he lacked formal education, Papi was exceptionally intelligent, teaching himself to read and write in Spanish and English.
For this and many reasons he is greatly loved and his memory will be cherished forever by many.

Papi Cheo -

Sometimes - we are stronger than our mortality and in your case; You are / have been so strong and are still beyond strong in our memories and in our hearts. You live on forever and stories will be told to further you being with us always.

I want to let you know that WE all are proud to have you as our father/grandfather. I personally am proud that I carry and live on with your name, Jose (Me in English: JOSEPH).

Growing up, I know many can attest to this fact:

Looking at you could strike fear in the hearts of many if they would see you were angry. You could/can move mountains with the strength you possess. But if you love them like you’ve love(d) your family; they also could feel it resonate through their body, heart and soul.
_______________

I wish I could give you the biggest hug and the greatest of comforts right now. But I know you are shining down upon us with a big smile from heaven where we all will see you again one day.

This is NOT goodbye - we’ll meet you one day again in OUR Father's paradise and we will all walk side by side.

We love you and we miss you so much.
