I will remember all the things you taught us. Through your love and example which is a legacy second to none. Your love was unconditional. We could not have asked for better parents. I thank God for giving me such loving and understanding parents.
Throughout your life there were enormous trials and tribulations. However that never changed the love you had for your wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and siblings. The harshness of life never demised your enter strength or faith in God. You never met a stranger. We were all in your mind and heart until God Almighty called you home.
I will always remember you for the great man you are. Till we met again in heaven.
Love your daughter Juani

Forgiveness is hard, but you always forgave us when we made a mistake. It is difficult to control anger, but you never got angry in front of us. Growing up, you always taught us that it is not easy to do the right things in life, but it pays off in the end. We love you, Dad.
