You will be dearly missed! You were and still are one of the greatest uncles I have. You were always smiling and laughing. You were always willing and ready to help. You were a kind, very humble and caring Tio. May you be resting peacefully in Heaven with Our Almighty God.

Grandpa i really thought that our lord was going to give us a miracle, I really thought you were going to come home, celebrate every holiday with us, and pick me up from school. And now I accept the fact that you are gone. But when I think about it, our lord did give us miracles, our lord actually give us a lot of miracles such as you waking up, breathing on your own, and the doctors reviving you and plenty of more and I thank the lord for that, I thank the lord for giving us miracles, I thank him for giving me a good,wonderful, strong,smart,loving grandpa in my life and for everything else the lord has done for me and my family.
I will miss you grandpa you are forever in my heart and memories. I will miss those fist bumps that we did every time you drop me off at my house.

Grandpa, you are the most strongest loving caring person I have ever met in my life the most grand person I have ever met. You have given me so much in life taught me so much in life. You help me when I was struggling in school and you helped my mom take care of me when she couldn’t. You raises me to be the man that you wanted me to be and you have 100% succeeded. Not only were you my grandpa but you were my dad, you gave things when i didn’t have anything, when I didn’t have it you bought me food, you take me to show to give me out of the house and I loved every single part of that. Dad you were always smiling always joking always goofy, I will always remember how when you get home from work all the kids will rush outside to go and hug you and say hi. I will always remember do you or wants a daycare center for all of us, pick us up from school and cook us food or buy us food, I will always remember that thing you did with our ears and I noses that i will mis forever. Grandpa you are not gone you will forever be here with me you are my guardian for 22 years I know you’re my guardian angel for the rest of my life and I think you for always being there and I thank you for continuing to be there. Grandpa I love you and I will always love you. Thank you for being the GRANDEST MAN I could ever have in my life.
