A year has gone by since you left us daddy. I miss you so much. Time has passed but it doesn't make it any easier. The memories and photos are the only things you left us with, but the most important thing you taught me was integrity. Being honest, fair, caring and always respecting others and their wishes. I thank you for instilling that in me. I love you daddy. You will forever be in my heart.

Grandpa thank you for all the wonderful memories! Collecting eggs from the chicken coop, finding interesting rocks and adding them to our collection, going with you to sell snow cones, spending 4th of July and Christmas with you and grandma, swinging on the tire swing you made for me, enjoying late night snacks while talking and laughing, etc.I'm so sad that you are no longer with us, but happy that you have reunited with grandma.I know you are in heaven watching over all of us. Please don't forget to visit me in my dreams. I love you very much!Always,Your Country Girl

My dear father-in-law, don Tomas, how does a person express the deep love, the genuine respect and loyalty, the humbleness and strength of your character, your infinite aspiration and willingness to help others at any time of the day, especially those you have already helped throughout your life, and the silence of your pain caused by those you loved. The many years that Rosie and I visited you and mom, we cherished and engraved those moments in our hearts, the trips that we made together in spite of others who chastised me for spoiling you and mom. The one trip that transformed your fortified character to your inner child was the trip to Disneyland, where I saw the look in your face Grandpa of grandeur; that brought tears to my eyes. Finally, the endless nights that you and I sat together under the carport to chat about your days of the past and those of the present. These endless memories I will hold dearly in my heart forever. May the Lord, His angels, and Hermiña along with Tomas Jr. receive you with open arms. Rest in peace Grandpa.

Grandpa, we love you! I know mom and dad are still lost without you being part of their daily acitivies, memories and laughs. Growing up I enjoyed staying at your house and going with you while you made your rounds selling raspas, candies, sodas and pickles. We had a lot of great times and memories with family going to your house when we were younger. You were always the best dressed dude I knew. Love you Cat!

Daddy you are dearly missed. My heart aches. All we have now are all the wonderful memories you left us. I thank God for blessing me with such a great dad. You loved your family with all your heart. You were a very hard working man who made sure his family had everything they needed. You were always there for everyone who needed help. Daddy my only consolation is that you are now at peace and no longer in pain. You are now together with mommy. Rest In Peace daddy. Love you forever.

Grandpa I miss you so much that still many simple things remind me of you. You left me with a lot of great memories that I can continue to talk and laugh about. Our home feels different without you here with us. When I walk by your room I still look in it and I imagine you sleeping all cuddled up in bed but I know you're in a better place now with Grandma. May you Rest In Peace Grandpa. I love you and miss you!
