Tony Flores, my husband, my Love.
Jesus said, "I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." Ez 36:26
You received the Word, believed and lived the Word...You didn't just Talk the Talk, but you Walked the Walk!
Real heroes point to the Hero, (Jesus) who never disappoints.
I pause to reflect on the past years with my only love and soulmate of Fifty (50) years. I seek God's perspective for my life while we are apart.
I cry, and I mourn, I miss you so much!
God comforts me, and tells me in His Word, "Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted." Another translation puts it this way, "You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by "The One" most dear to you."
How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of Peace, and bring glad tidings of good things.
You always quoted this scripture: "So whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved." Rom 10:13
Whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. For to this end Christ both died and rose again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living. God is so rich in kindness that He purchased our freedom with the Blood of His Son.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I won't give up!
The Call to rise and soar rings deep in my soul.
"Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it. Song of Solomon 8:7
"For I am persuaded (convinced) that neither death nor life, nor angels, not principalities; nor powers, nothing present, nothing to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
A man of God, and the will of God, is immortal until his work on Earth is done.
In the stillness of my heart, my soul is lifted up, by wings of Hope.
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings as Eagles; They shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."
I have a home waiting for me in a land I have not yet seen.
Until then, I'll be missing you.
See you there!!!
I love you, Tony
Your wife,
Mellie

My Dad, My Wonderful, Amazing, Loving, STRONG Dad. There is not a day that passes, that I don't think of you, Where I don't miss something of the great character of you. You were one of a kind...No one like you. I was your only daughter, that n itself was such a privilege. You have always made me beam with pride and adoration when we walked through these streets. Everyone was so drawn to the your smile, your "call it like it was" way, your Integrity and most of all, your Faith. I miss you Dad- I miss your laughter, your hugs, your voice. I miss watching you express yourself with your hands while you spoke, an endless list of character traits that made you who you were...our lives as a family are forever changed with your absence but everything you instilled in us, everything that was important to you...you passed on, it remains intact. We all share & bask in the memories you've left us with. Sometimes missing you brings tears to our eyes or tugs at our hearts...but your Love and the most precious essence of you and your integrity & Faith keeps us grounded, Strong & Warm with the strength to keep striving forward...as you always did, you always pressed forward throughout our lives together. Yes, I wish we had more years together, but I KNOW and hold on to the promise that we will be together again. I miss you more then words ...I'll love you Dad, F o r e v e r. Your Daughter will always delight in the stories & Memories of you. Your Daughter will always love and miss you...your daughter will always be grateful and proud of the Man her Father was. Always true always putting his family first. She has ALWAYS known that you LOVED her, ALL of her life. I am so grateful for that gift. It brings me a sense of comfort through rough days. You always were a mighty, measure of a GOOD man. miss you Dad, the Best Dad a girl could have, A Strong Man of Faith. Meet us at the gate, Your Daughter, Julianna

Tony Flores, My Husband, My Only Love

Many waters cannot quench Love,
Neither can the floods drown it.
Song of Solomon 8:7

How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the Gospel of Peace, and bring glad tidings of good things.
Romans 10:15

Honey,
This scripture is you...2 Timothy 4:6-8

For I am ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith;
Hereafter, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but to all them that love His appearing.

I MISS YOU!!!

I am comforted by God's Word.
Matthew 5:4
Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.

JESUS COMFORTS ME

Romans 14:8,9
Whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's.
For to this end Christ both died, and rose, again that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.

The Message Bible, Matthew 5:4 says,
You are blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by "The One" most dear to you.

Tony,

You always quoted this scripture...Romans 10:13

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.
God is so rich in kindness and grace that He purchased our freedom with the blood of His Son.
Ephesians 1:7

You
Received The Word
Believed The Word
Lived The Word

You didn't just talk the talk,
but you walked the walk!

I can still hear you say, "Come to Christ, and have a new life."

I love this scripture Romans 8:38,39
For I am persuaded (convinced) that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nothing present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus, our Lord.

"A man of God in the will of God is immortal until his work on earth is done."

I pause and reflect on the past years with my love and soul mate of fifty (50) years. I seek God's perspective for my life while we are apart. I find growth to celebrate and also to mourn for missed opportunities.
In the stillness of my heart, my soul is lifted up by wings of Hope.

He gives Power to the faint; and to them that have no might. He increases strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall utterly fall: but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:29,30,31

The call to rise and soar rings deep in my soul.

I have a home waiting for me in a land I have not yet seen.

SEE YOU THERE!!!

Until then, I'll be missing you!

Your Wife,

I don't believe anyone can really appreciate another person until they are gone and take the time to think of all the things a person had accomplished. My Dad was a man that accomplished many things. He had a rough childhood without a father to show him how to be a man, but he became a great man. He always had time for everyone, as far back as I can remember. When I think of fathers today they don't measure up to mine. My Dad was a family man. With a wife and 5 kids we could always count on him to take care of us and show us how we should trust in the Lord in times of trouble. We learned to have faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are a blessed family to have had the man Tony Flores as a husband, father, grandfather, and friend. I hope I can honor the Lord in my life as he did, and I know if I do I will be honoring my Dad also. I love and miss you Pop, until we meet again. Your son Spider.

I wish you were here for me to tell you in person. Perhaps the Lord will pass along the message to you. Thanks for being a great father-in-law to me. You always treated me as a son. I miss sitting at the table at our house and talking. You had a way of turning any conversation into a bible lesson. I'm glad you are with all of the great people of the bible, so you can talk with your heroes face to face. I miss the sound of your voice. You were a great role model and had an amazing faith. I always knew that you loved me. You made a great impact in my life. I look forward to seeing you some day in heaven.

I thought about you today,
but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
I suppose that will never end,
until in Glory I see you again.
I often think of you,
in silence I often hear your words,
strong, wise words of encouragement and power in the Lord.
To be without Christ's help we cannot afford.
All I have are memories now of you,
your picture in a frame,
the memory of the love you so freely gave,
the memory of your big bear hugs,
that made me feel so loved,
Your memory is a keepsake from which I'll never part.
Christ has you in His arms,
I have you in my heart.

Tony Flores is My Father-In-Law, to me he is so much more. I cannot list all of the things I have learned from him in the years I have been a part of his family. The moment I met him I became a part of his family. He is greatly missed here on this earth...however I know he is in the loving care of our Savior Jesus Christ. Where we all long to be. I will see you again Dad. I love you, Shelly

Tony Flores was a special man to a lot of people , a man that everybody loved to be around .especially me. My grandfather is the one who shared the word of jesus with me.Got me on the right thinking track.Always put family first and always had unconditional love for me even tho i wasn't the most abiding citizen but none of that mattered cause we were blood..When jesus took my grandpa to heaven i was selfish.i needed him to still guide me i was mad and lost faith.now i have a new plan to b strong and make my grandfather proud. i love you and remember all the wise messages u shared with me and love u all the more for that..rest in peace and i will see u in heaven
