February 18, 2021

The past 22 years, I had the pleasure of watching the true meaning of a father and grandfather in action. I knew when the white truck pulled up, a father/son/grandson project was about to go down. I always thought that was so cool! The Carde family was lucky to have him. His faith in God guided him to be a wonderful man who made everyone feel special and loved. May you rest in peace Victor and know you left your mark here in the neighborhood.

Sending Love and Light,

Thank you for all the special memories you have given me for my 19 years of life. The one I recall the most, is when I was making crazy jokes on Christmas years ago, and you were laughing the hardest at them. May your soul Rest In Peace, and may you watch over and guide me through out my life. I will always love you. Until we meet again-Your grandson Angel.

My abuelo will always have a special place in my heart. One of my favorite memories is when we went over to their house and he had just built the casita from Puerto Rico. We were joking around and sharing stories, and you even let me hold one of those baby chickens. We picked fruit and everything. Thank you for all the memories you’ve given me that I will take through life. I’ll love you forever, rest well. Heaven has truly gained an angel.

On Friday - February 12, 2021, heaven gained another real true Angel and we lost a dedicated husband of over 50 years, a proud father of 3, an amazing granddad, a supportive uncle to so many. I'm so proud and honored to call him my tio. He's going to be missed by so many but he's left so many memories. I love you tio
