Thank you for always making me feel welcomed in your home. You were always so nice and made me laugh a lot with your great sense of humor. After putting up with mine and Elvira's teenage years you still made me feel welcomed and loved. I was so Blessed to have you and your family in my life. I love you and you will be greatly missed. My prayers and love go out to the Almanza family. 💗

When I married your daughter you welcomed me to your family. The holidays, trips to Tahoe, and eggs smashed on heads were just part of the journey. Looking back I wouldn't change a thing. The time spent with you has made me who I am. Thank you for always making me feel welcome and loved while being in your presence. I will miss my birthday buddy. God bless and may you rest in peace. Love you. John
