Dear Mrs. Branco, Paul and Jeff, and extending family and friends of Mr. Branco,
Your family is so warm and welcoming to all those surrounding them. Our time together was so short lived but a lifetime of memories came out of our time together. Mr. Branco's love for his family and humor came shining through right to the end. The small moments that are huge moments will never be forgotten. His love for Bailey was special too and Bailey loved him so much. I'm so happy to have seen Mr. Branco play harmonica for his family from Canada, enjoy his yard and to have had this time to see so many people before his final departure. Mrs. Branco, the kiss you shared with your husband was witnessed by me and your love for each other will live forever and I will never forget you nor that moment. I know he is smiling down upon you and will be with you everyday, every step of the way. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
My deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to all of you. Love, Celia

Paul, Jeff
I'm so very sorry for the loss of your Dad. He and I would share many laughs when he would be doing yard work next door. Whether it was the summer and around July 4th or just in general, he would tease me about my lack of love for the July 4th celebration or my friend in Providence. Your Dad was a good man, but you both already know that. He would constantly tell me how much he loved his family and how much he loved this country. Rest assure, he is a peace with God, and has no more pain or suffering. You both take care of each other and your Mom.

Hug your mom for me.
