Kathy and family, You are in my thoughts and prayers. Cres was a gentle, kind, giving man. He is truly an example of the "Greatest Generation"--unselfishly giving of his time and abilities without a thought to his own personal gain. The treehouse was built better than lots of houses. I have many fond memories of Cres. I am deeply saddened by his loss.

Theresa, I was saddened to hear of your family's loss. Although there has not been contact for many years, there is not a time that I am visiting my mom just down the street that I don't pass your childhood home and think of you and your loving, sweet family. Your father was a quiet man; but his presence was strongly felt when nearby. He may be physically gone, but he lives in you and your brothers. May he rest in peace.

Theresa,
My most heartfelt condolences go out to you and the Jaramillo family during this difficult time. Growing up in Grand Oaks made us all feel like we were part of a larger community family. I have many memories of the Jaramillo family and they all involve a smiling, happy, loving family. You were all blessed with such an abundance of love and happiness for each other that it overflowed and was shared by the entire neighborhood. May God bless you and give you peace as you move forward in the Lord~ Diana Back Grosser
