He told me be at peace and let your days be filled with joy, and that’s exactly what my grandpa said as he called me, “his little boy” ____________________________________________________________________________________ Grandpa,

I can see your smile every time I close my eyes and feel your arms around me as I look toward the skies,

I hear your voice speak to me like I was a child again, You say be strong and have faith, because that’s how you raised us, amen!!

There’s a never forgotten picture that’s held close to my heart, Of us on the pier fishing, from sunlight to dark.....

Laughing and giggling cause no fish have been caught, But this is my happiness, togetherness cannot be bought...

You’ve impacted many, and many you didn’t even know, but look at us Grandpa, were filled with your glow...

Grandpa, I love you like forever and a day And your words echo loudly, as you say, Mijo, any day....

Your Grandson, Jitter Raymond

Daddy was the most incredible Father. He loved me and all my brothers and Sisters unconditionally. We never had to even attempt to try to make him proud of us, he was proud to call us his children regardless of our accomplishments. He walked every bit of what he talked. He was true to God every single day of my life. I’m proud that he was my Daddy. I love him and miss him so very much. My life is definitely impacted because I can’t see him and hug him, but I hear his voice telling me he loves me and I feel his presence. Until I see you again Daddy!! I love you very, very much!!! Your Negrita, your baby girl, Dina Joy

My sincerest condolences from the my husband and I. I have wonderful memories of Pastor Ibarra, Brother Ibarra as I often called him. I so enjoyed his preaching, the way he often asked the congregation questions. You really had to know your Word when he preached! I remember his singing and guitar playing. Most of all I remember him always calling me ‘hermanita’, his beautiful smile and always, always so happy. He loved the Lord and it showed. He was a wonderful man. Brother Ibarra I love you, and I will always continue to have a smile on my face when thoughts of you come up. A soldier you were, faithful, always faithful and always demonstrating the love from within. You are now with our Father, our Purpose. You have been missed and will continue to be missed. Dolores ❤️
