Dave and Mary Ann and the rest of the family,
We love all of you and are praying for all of you at this time. Yes, it is a sad time to lose our beloved Father, Grandfather, Father-in-law, and uncle, but it is a joyous time because we all know he is with the Lord and totally healed. We will always remember his tender heart and his love for his family. Dale and I will always remember our visit with him when we last saw the whole family. He sat outside with Dale and shared many family memories, shed tears, and shared much about many things that he knew. Dale said he was a very smart man. My memories of him are that he was very compassionate and loving. I never heard him say an unkind word about anybody, and he never harbored bitterness against his family. He loved Aunt Sofie, and he loved all of you very much. We will all miss him, but we all have such beautiful loving memories of our Uncle Lupe. We are happy to have had him as our BELOVED Uncle. To the Grandkids---how blessed you were to have had a Grandfather in your lives. Blessings to all of you.
