My dad is a man like no other. He gave me life nurtured me, taught me, dressed me, fought for me, held me, yelled at me, kissed & hugged me, but most importantly he loved me & my kids unconditionally.
There are no words I can say to describe just how important my dad was to me and what a powerful influence he continues to be. The impact he had in my life and in my children’s lives. He is the man who helped me raise my daughter Cherrel and my son Jeffrey without his love and guidance we do not know where we would have been today. My dad will forever be in our hearts and in our souls.
Never to be forgotten.
I Love You Dad! ❤️❤️

We never thought we would see the day you would no longer be here with us. We saw you take your last breath and that moment plays over and over again in our heads. You suffered so much and it hurt us to see you like that but we were too selfish to let you go. You took a piece of our hearts when you left. We know your in a better place and your no longer suffering but it still hurts not having you here with us. Nothing will ever be the same now that your gone. We're going to miss the stories you would tell us about your childhood, the repeated soccer games you would watch, the loud mariachi band you would watch in the middle of the night that would wake us all up. We would do anything to spend these moments again with you.
You were more than just a grandfather to us. You were more like a dad. You taught us the value of life, you taught us how to be strong and smart. You provide us with everything we needed and more and for that we will always be grateful. You are the greatest man we will ever know and no one could ever replace you. Thank you for all you have done and we will hold you in our hearts forever. We love and miss you so much and we wait for the day to see you again.
