It's been over a month that my dear dad had departed. How I missed watching our NY Yankees baseball games with him! We used to enjoy whenever the Yankees were winning and we both would comfort each other whenever they blew a game they surely would have won. Our father-son relationship really grew strong during all those years since my childhood! Lord knows I miss him dearly.

Papa Jaime,
You made growing up "Torres" exceptional. You were an amazing grandparent and loving person even to those whom you hardly knew. You will never be forgotten and the holidays will never be the same without you. Thank you for your never-ending generosity, love and comedy.


Your grandson David

Mi querido Tio Jaime o El Morivivi, o El Vionico como siempre te llamaba. Cuanta risa nos causaban todos estos nombres que con el tiempo y por todas tus operaciones fuistes bautizado, el cual en tu recaida fisica con milagro de Dios te recuperabas como si nada hubiera pasado. Mas lo cogias positivamente y le buscabas un chiste.
Todo tu eras amor y tu alegria era como pegajosa.
Te estranaremos mucho, mas Dios nos dice en su palabra que muerte es vida.
Vida Eterna en Cristo Jesus.
2da Corintios 5:8 Ausente del cuerpo, presente con el Senor.
En el Reino de los Cielos, y en presencia de Dios, el gozo que tienes es incomparable.
No es un adios sino hasta luego.
Nuestro corazon acompana a titi Chispi y a mis primos, Jaimito y Carlitos en este duro momento de separacion.
Que el amor de Dios Padre y de nuestro Senor Jesucristo los acompane por siempre.
Con todo nuestro amor,
Rufito y Ama
