Roberto,
I know what your father meant to you and what you are feeling right now. But rest easy, you were the very best son that any parent could have, loving, kind, patient and generous. Some people never have the love you both shared. Cherish it with the wonderful thoughts of your father.
Jean and Bob

Roberto, every parent should be as lucky as your father was to have a son as caring and giving as you were. You are an example for others.

We were never what one would call close friends(there was a language barrier,my Spanish is sorely lacking);but we always greeted each other with a smile (always a smile on Roberto's face) and a few other simple pleasantries. I will miss that bright smile and always pleasant manner.
