Sergio, I know this is all a part of the circle of life that we will all experience one day, but that doesn't make it any easier. If only we had another moment to say I Love You, You Mean The World To Me, Thank You. But life rarely gives us notice. I just want to thank you for your kindness, humor, and wisdom, and I know we will see you again one day. Te Quiero Tio.

I may not have known my grandfather very well but I could always tell his devotion to his family, always working his hardest until he could no more. I'm happy to have known a man of such mental and physical integrity.

Mi cuni querido, no te digo adios sino hasta luego. Sergio fue un hombre muy querido por toda la familia y amigos por igual. Fue un hombre servicial y muy attento y muy carinoso. Te extranare mucho cuni pero se que pronto nos encontraremos toda la familia junta otra vez en el reino del Senor. Tu cuni que nunca te olvidara. Julita

I never say good-bye to a loved one. I say till we meet again. Please keep my spot warm. I know he is enjoying the new found health and wholeness. He is up in heaven singing with Dad. He is dancing with Juli to Dad's guaguacons. Right now he doesn't even look down at us because he is so whelmed with all the beautiful sight up in heaven, the golden roads, the bluest sky, the beautiful angels. All the singing and the joy up there by God's side. Till we meet again, love Myriam

How do I say good-bye to a man I came to love as my father. To those who did not know this, never have I heard this man say an unkind word to his wife, to his kids, never has he lifted a hand as if to strike out to another. He was certainly a special man. He was a great husband, a great father and grandfather, he had many friends that loved and respected man. He was a big presence in our lives and will be missed. The one thing I thank you dad for was for treating mom with love, gentleness and respect. Because of you, she never wanted for nothing. God added another angle at his side.

Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this difficult time in your lives. May the many wonderful memories of Sergio help console your hearts, and may the Lord bless you with love, peace, and hope.
