Mr. Diaz is a beautiful & sweet man we will all miss dearly. He was a hard working man, devoted husband to Mrs. Diaz, & fond father to Ruben. We had the pleasure of having both Mr & Mrs Diaz as landlords & friends and know they are together forever in eternity as they were beloved on earth. God bless & hugs to all the family.
