Uncle Manuel was always so much fun at our family reunions & when he visited us, at the ranch. He told us stories & always had plenty of jokes & hugs to share. No gathering would have been complete without fresh, warm from the oven, Muzio rolls. He always brought enough for everyone, in our big family, to enjoy. The Becker siblings could get mad at one another; however, they were fiercely loyal & always available, when needed. I hope that they were all there to greet & hug you, Uncle.

I loved my Uncle Manuel always. I miss his trips to Washington State and him popping in when he was here. I’ve missed out not being around my whole family not living in the Sacramento area. My Mom ( Minnie, Uncle Manuel’s Sister )
married my Step Dad who happened to be a service member, hence moving away. I did get to spend my first 7 years living with grandma and grandpa Becker and my Aunts and Uncles who were still young and there too. I will miss Uncle Manuel and all of my family until I can see them again. God Bless his children left behind.
I’ve been praying for your comfort and peace.❣️ Love you, Gerry

Hi Dad- it’s me♥️ (him: hi baby)
I have so many memories- of course the wonderful ones shine very bright. I just want to say I’ll cherish every one of them for always! You thought me to be tough but not so tough I’m not lovable, you told me all about the depression times and thought me the value of money and groceries, we sang together, we cried together and ohhh how we could laugh! We had serious life conversations and could talk gardening for days. The stories you shared about bread and seafood deliveries were your pride! but sometimes sad. You would start the tough talks with Kimberly Anne, well you see…….. and we always ended them with a hug or an I love you! I will cherish our 1000s of kisses through the phone and I’ll never forget during a visit us counting the kisses until we got to your age (95) you became the inside softy dad a girl dreamt for, I’m proud to be your daughter! I will miss you everyday but I have faith I’ll be with you again in eternal life- I LOVE YOU DAD! And I miss you so much, love your baby girl
