Anselmo was a simple, kind, loving, spiritual, humble, great sense of humor, hard worker, great cook. These are just a few words that express what a great man he was. He loved & cared for his family unconditionally. He was a very simple & straightforward man. His wife was his everything, they were inseparable. All five of his kids are his pride & joy! We lost an awesome man but are comforted in knowing we have a guardian angel watching over us. We will miss you terribly, love you forever & remember you always!
