My Daddy was a kind, sincere & devoted man whose smiling face brought joy to those he touched - even if he only met them once. God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put His arms around him and whispered, Come with me. With tearful eyes we watched him suffer and saw him fade away, although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands to rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best."

Daddy - it's been 3 weeks to the day since we lost you. I miss you so very much but I know that you are and always will be in my heart and with me daily. I find myself walking around the apartment, feeling lost and missing you terribly. But then I know that you are not suffering any longer; that you are in Heaven with God, my mother and brother Robert, watching over me & Sylvie. I have so many loving fond memories of your stay with me and I pray that I made those 8 months happy for you. I did the best i could Daddy and I pray you knew that. I wanted to take care of you when you needed me in your elder years as you took care of me when I was a newborn and needed you. You are my hero; my rock; and my anchor. I pray that you are at peace now.

To Uncle Rudy: We will miss you and will never forget how you kept the family united and we will remain that way through and through. Personally, I will never forget going to the house on Houston avenue and eating that great German chocolate cake that aunt Susie would bake. Man, it was delicious!
lot of hugs!
(nephew) Tato and (sister) Isabel.

Mr Reyes : One of my fondest memories was at my birthday party three years ago when you sang Happy Birthday to me. That really touched my heart. God bless you and thanks for the memories. 6/10/2013 8:00pm

Dear Daddy,

I remember all of the good times we had over the years. You taught me how to ride a bike, fly a kite and how to catch a fly ball. You and Mom always gave up everything for the four of us. You loved Mom as much as you loved us. I admired your intelligence, humor and logic. I pray I could be half the man you are. You will always be in my heart and my mind. I love you and I will see you, Mom and Robert one day soon.


Your Son Rudy

I will miss you. You did show and teach me how to be a man and to take care of family. You watch over me and my family when I first started. How can I express to someone who was a important person through out my life. Thank you and I will miss you.

You are one of our heroes.
We will remember you always and miss you dearly.
Take your Warrior's rest for a duty well done.

I wish to extend to members of your family my deepest sympathy on their loss. May the force of GOD be with them as they walk through this difficult time. May the loving promises of our LORD and Savior comfort them and give them strength.

As a grateful Veteran, I leave my sympathy and hope you accept this as a small token of appreciation for the honorable and faithful service rendered by your loved one to our Country.
