Manny,

It’s difficult to say goodbye, because you wanted the best for our family, and you were immensely proud of us. I feel blessed that I had your support and love when Cynthia and I got married, and then started our own little family. We will always cherish the memories we have of our time together, and let the boys know that Grandpa Manny still loves them and is looking down on them and smiling from heaven.

My favorite memories were when he called every Sunday. It didn't matter what we talked about I just always enjoyed our conversations.

My favorite conversation was when we were talking about his birds and how the little one named baby was his favorite.

Dear Grandpa...
I love you so much and miss you dearly. I remember it like it was yesterday when Grandma would come pick us up from the airport sometimes and take us to your house and I'd open the door and you'd be sitting on the couch in your favorite spot and yell across the house, "my big man, my boy, my first grandson welcome back". I remember all of the good times we had and all the laughs like when we went out to eat at ihop and you tried stealing my hash browns haha. Or that time when we sat on the couch until like 11:30 at night binge watching your favorite flag show and just talking for hours and hours. To me I loved all of the fun small things we had. It didn't have to be a big occasion, it just had to be you and I sitting or walking or driving and just talking. Just being with each other meant so much to me and it was those memories that I love the most. You were my rock, my best friend, my father figure that was there when my father wasn't. You always pushed me to strive to succeed in life and I am going to do that and I will fulfill your legacy. I love you so much Grandpa but I'm not saying goodbye, and that's because I know I will see you soon and we will be with each other again one day. Maybe we can go see a mets game! Again, I love you Grandpa and you truly are missed. Don't have too much fun up there in heaven without me!

Dad, I will miss you more than words can express. I will miss your daily text messages checking in on me and my family, your voicemails "Call Dad," and your words of wisdom. You taught me to be a strong woman with the same work ethic, love of travel, enjoy new foods, and take car rides. Love you forever, Cynthia

I remember all of the fun times we had together. All of our conversations that we had on the phone. We had tons and tons of laughs together. Always bringing a smile to everyones face.

I have a vivid memory of all of the times we were going to go out and you'd always ask where's your ripstick (lipstick) and stinky water (perfume) was. Id always say that I don't wear ripstick and you'd just smile and laugh. He said well you're going to sit in the front seat with little old grandpa because you're my date and we're going to hold hands.

I love you so much! I will miss you dearly!

My Cuny, Cuny you have been my older brother, I remember our food competitions round 1, 2 and 3, practically saving my life that dark day in NY when you took me to the hospital. Always supporting my projects with that generosity that stood out to you, you will always live in my heart and prayers, it is very painful to know that you are no longer physically with us, rest in peace my dear brother. Amen
