I’m Ana Solorio, Oliver Solorio Rios daughter, when I met my uncle Abner, he used to give me candies at his house in Mc Fadden. Ave in the city of Santa Ana Ca. He used to tell me mijita donde está aquel amigo? Asking for my father; He used to tell me mijita, since we were children ; I used to look and follow este amigo referring to my father, Oliver Solorio Rios. They used to get together to drink coffee at Starbucks during mornings and when my uncle Abner could not walk far away anymore, my father used to walk to his house to visit him. Or I will drop him off. They love each other very much.!! My father passed away on January of this year. Now once again they are together in the presence of our creator. Uncle Abner, you will always live in our hearts. Sincerely: Ana Solorio.

I have so many great memories of hiking and you mostly carrying a machete around to kill snakes 🐍 grandma would scream and there you were ready with a machete! You would sing a song and bounce us on your lap every time you saw us and gave us lots of scruffy kisses 😘 You not only gave this family endless Disneyland passes you gave us this whole family we love and a proud legacy of faith and love. You are so loved and I very much hope you have your machete in heaven ❤️❤️
