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.
