My dearest Tio Armando was a wonderful man. I remember, as a child, being excited to know he was coming to visit. My mom would have my sister Melissa and I sing a song to him and he’d pay us a dime. That was a lot of money for a kid back in the day. My grandmother, Benita, adored him. She’d share some memories of his upbringing. My mother, Bertha (his sister), loved her big brother more than words can say. The distance between us kept us from visiting often. But he was always in our thoughts and prayers. My grandparents, Santos and Benita, and my dear mother Bertha, are rejoicing to have Tio Armando complete the family in heaven. He will be missed, but I believe that Our Lord has a good reason to have called him to his kingdom. Sending our Love and prayers to Tia Ilma, Mando, and Cindy! From The Flores’ (Max, Clarissa, Crystal, Krissa, and Max Andrew). ❤️🙏🏻😘
