Julie, Jerry, Rhonda & Family,
There are so many wonderful memories of your dad to share, more forgotten than remembered. Mr. & Mrs. Figero's beautiful home on Independence Dr. that was the base of so many good times. I remember swimming in the pool and running soaking wet through their home and never hearing a loud word out of Ray or Diane. Running around with the neighborhood kids and Ray calling me in after dark, standing on his porch with the glow of his cigarette. Diane's haircuts and perms with mom, learning to make cookies and bake goodies, unknown to all, Designer Cakes in the infancy stage. Ray scaring me as a child with the cemetery in the "backyard," his ghost stories of ghosts knocking on the windows at night. Dad telling me I shouldn't be afraid, then jumping out of his skin with the horse at the sliding glass door looking in. Ray and Diane laughed out loud with tears streaming down their faces. Singing Christmas carols with Uncle Charlie and Marge and of course, eating! Ray standing over the stove saying, "such good food!" while rubbing his stomach. Waiting for each new grand baby to arrive while making bets in the waiting room on boy or girl and how much will the baby weigh, with Diane's dollar bills and the look of pure joy on their faces. Who can forget....Wedding Cakes! Birthday Cakes! Anniversary Cakes! Carrot Cakes! Graduation Cakes! Boobie Cakes! Anyone that was married in Pueblo was blessed with a beautiful cake. Ray was an amazing artist, he decorated and designed every child's birthday cake in the city, each one perfectly designed. Ray was a skilled electrician, his work is behind the walls of our houses. He was a perfectionist, Dad looking over his shoulder making sure he "knew what he was doing!" (Dad caught every house on fire, then called in Ray to clean up the mistakes Dad made.) Mr. Figero, thank you for all the wonderful memories, funny moments and the knowledge you have given to your family. Love, Shawn & Sue Christie
