Dear Mrs. Arriaga, Moi and Alba,
I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved father and husband. It was wonderful growing up across the street and spending time at your home where we always enjoyed delicious food and lots of laughter. Even with his setbacks in recent years, Mr. Arriaga always had a warm smile for us and his beloved grandchildren! I will miss his smiles and look forward to celebrating his life with you all this weekend. With much love to all!
