Fond Childhood memory…to be a Diaz was to have your life celebrated with a bbq, whether you were being born, baptized, confirmed, graduated, engaged, married, divorced or just having an anniversary. Whatever the delicacy was it was burned on the outside and bloody red on the inside. LOL!!! The bbq that outshines them all was the Easters at the lake. Guys would head out Saturday to stake a claim on a great spot while women & children joined the party on Sunday for a Full Fun Day of Family Fellowship!

Our first adult conversation…a day that brought joy to my world …was when Tio finally spoke to me like a grown up. Not at me like the unwanted child that hindered all the Diaz Children. To top it off our conversation was all about Jesus and Believing and how he allowed us to experience Miracles in our lives because we Believed!!! Praise God he is resting. Praise God his fight ended in Victory. Praise God he’s united with Our Father in Heaven as well as his parents.

My prayers are always with you!!! May you find the consolation you need in our Lord Jesus Christ. When you feel lost or that you’ve lost a loved one just remember he’s paved the way for you to follow his footsteps and make it to Heaven to be united with him on your Great Day!!! When you read Ecc 3:1-9 the more of each line that you shared with him is the richest he’s left you til you meet again! God Bless You & Lots of Love to you…Rosalinda
