Uncle Herbie I will miss you. I know I'm not real family, but he always made me feel like part of the family. He would do just about anything to turn our frowny face or sad face upside down having us giggling non stop. Always smiling and laughing about something just to see us happy. Love you Uncle Herbie. Till we meet again at Jesus feet. Love Dede

Our father touched so many lives and was love by many.He grew up in a large family he started working at a very young age in order to help his family .He Loved his wives ,Children,grandchildren and great grandchildren he and O'dino Jimenez whom he treated as his own son. My two children Katelin and Johnathan will miss him dearly they grew closer to him when he visited us in California recently he love to make Katelin smile and blush and with Johnathan he would tease him about his beard and mustache he and Johnathan had long serious conversations about stocks and bonds as john was studying about them in his E-Business class I remember when Katelin was a baby he would call her his little Whitecloud because she looked like a little indian baby . Our father loved going to the beach and swimming in our backyard pool and he loved sun bathing . He enjoyed playing hide in seek in the dark with us three and the neighbourhood kids . Both my father and mother where very involved in our school PTA and received many awards he loved putting on his Frankenstein mask and scare the kids at our schools haunted house that he put together with our mom for our elementary school.
