    Tio Carlos my memories are so many! Sleep overs, getting to eat dinner with ya’ll, playing in the back yard, going fishing with my dad, you, grandpa solomon, uncle frank and uncle chris, going to cooks out at uncle chris’s…just sooo many memories! I remember when my dad passed sitting with you at the church held your hand cause we were both so sad and talk! It felt good cause that was as close as I could get to my dad again!

    I can not find the words as to what or how I feel dad. I just know I am numb & my heart will never be the same. My solid never-yielding rock has parted from me for now. Please give me strength & continue to give me your guidance as I continue in life.
