Tío Sergio
Siempre te recordaré como una persona alegre y divertida
Amaba los momentos que vivía junto a ti mientras estuviste en Chile, como olvidar esas ensaladas, las empanadas de queso que te quedaban maravillosas, empanadas que comíamos en la madrugada cuando llegabas del puerto, nuestros paseos en la renoleta a pescar o al sporting, mi vida era feliz junto a ti y mis primos.
Siempre te recordaré con cariño.
tu sobrina

Mr. Miranda was a vibrant, kindred spirit, who lit up the living room every time he talked. He loved to share his knowledge from books with everyone by retelling stories he read and brought them to life. It definitely inspired my kids with books. He also loved what he did in life. By working in hospitality he learned so many new languages from his customers. He would then take this passion and share it with everyone. A great example was when he would toast during special occasions in random languages to make us all laugh. Not only did Papa Miranda know so much, he also had a great memory. He would never forget a date. Whether it was my kids birthday, or even my birthday I could always rely on him giving me a call. Sometimes it was at 3am in the morning, but I'll give it to him that he never forgot! He will be missed by his family and friends alike. Rest in peace Papa Miranda, we will love you always.

I met Sergio in 1991 when I visited his house, with my best friend and his son , Carlos. I wasn’t very familiar with Chile at the time and even less with Valparaíso but he quickly shared vivid and passionate stories of his homeland that immediately grabbed my attention and inspired a desire to visit this far off land. He pulled out photo albums and soon his lovely wife Rita and kids got in on the storytelling and I instantly felt like part of the family. The Miranda family is very special to me and he is more my uncle than the father of my dear friend. He was also incredibly musically talented and jammed out like no ones business! I’ve been living in Chile for a decade and a half and can attest the beauty and wonder of this land, just as he had told me...”Luís, you have to visit Chile one day. You won’t want to come back”...he was right. Here I am. I miss you tio Sergio.
Until we meet again. Rest well.

My Dad, loved soccer we talked about sports most of the time and told stories about his child hood. Growing up in Chile as a child I remember you would take us on some long fishing trips and to the sporting arena to play soccer and watch horse races. You loved to BBQ you were a grill master, my favorite was the London Broil and Salmon. Your favorite Steak was the Shell Steak also known as the NY Strip at 3am after a long day at Charlie's you would smoke up the house and mom would be after you LOL. I often find myself behind the grill trying to live up to your skills! Thank you Dad for all you did for our family and thank you for the 3am text messages “Do well son, Love you”, “Tata.” I really didn't know how much I would miss you not being here. You did it your way and accomplished much with the hand you were handed and I will always honor you for that! I will never forget our days of joy and fun at Lake Welch, Poconos and Cheesequake State Park. Love you Dad your son Chechi!

Dad, We were always talking about music bands and concerts, your favorites: The Moody Blues, The Rolling Stones, no-not the Beatles-Mom loved the Beatles, heh. Favorite concerts Woodstock, Santana “Soul Sacrifice”, we would just stare, listen and enjoy the heck out of that music, Mom dancing in the background. In Chile as a child I would ear up to the speaker and you would laugh with joy. You loved your horse races, knew about the most obscure horses out there. Will miss you Pops, All my love. “Do well, Love you all”, “Tata.”
