Correction - we are still blessed with one aunt on my dad's side - Herminia Gomez, my uncle Charles's wife. My apologies.

Well, he was the last of my aunt's and uncles on my dad's side and he was always so up-beat and smiling. I loved his voice with it's southern twang and his infectious laugh. I have many memories of the family parties at grandma and grandpa's house in Castroville and the visits at his home in San Antonio. Delia and Josh were blessed to have him so many years...and the Lord took him quickly...no suffering. My prayers are with the family on this great loss...but we look forward to the reunion in heaven. Love and prayers.
