Ramon y Fernando I'm so sorry for your loss, we all are with you and we will miss my Tio. Que Dios lo tenga en su gloria. I also remember your dad's smile, when ever you looked at him he had that welcoming smile, just like you too have, I remember your home in Santa Monica and your Dad coming home from work he never sat down he would go straight to the kitchen and try to find some food to offer me, your dad always made sure who ever was at his home felt welcomed. Very soft spoken kind hearted, I will miss you Tio Leandro, till we meet again in Glory. Love you Nancy Quezada.
