It's been just over four months since you been gone and I miss you so much, I'll always knowing my mind in my heart that I could have did a better job caring for you and better respecting you, and for that I am so sorry, but it was my honor and privilege to be able to care for you these last two years, but I also know that you were with Mom and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and that means the world to me to know that, say hi to Mom and Jesus for me, I will see you again, your loving son Paul, you're only loving son.

It's just been over 4 months since you've been gone and I miss you so much, I was both privileged and honored to take care of you those two years, and I will always believe in my mind in my heart that I could have did better somehow, but I know you and Mom are together again with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I just hope my two brothers find it in their hearts if they have hearts to feel remorse and regret for not being there for you during your last couple of weeks, and ask for your forgiveness and for Jesus to forgive them.

So many memories of the loving, caring man of God I called Papa. One story Papa shared with me was when I was a little girl and I fell down cutting my lip. He carried me crying to the doctor to get stitches & held me as I cried. He said he cried because I cried. Over the years I have seen that same compassion & love over & over with my family. My Papa taught me that loving & serving Jesus was the most important thing we could do & he lead by example including praying without ceasing for his family. Although I miss my Papa so much I know he is walking streets of gold in Heaven with my beautiful Mama. Thank you Papa for loving me! Your daughter, Lorraine

My most cherished memories of my Abuelito are probably the simple moments, like following him around while he did his day in and day out tasks. I loved watching him shave, I used to think it was so neat watching him slather soap on his face with his shave brush. And then sharing meals with him, I used to wish I could use my tortilla to scoop up my food the same way. To watching him tune and play his guitar, work with his tools in his tool shed, to watching him love each of my children by singing to them and squeezing their little hands the list could go on and on, and as such so will his legacy. To say I will miss him is a tremendous understatement, but thankfully I can say I have countless memories to hold onto until we meet again.
