My tio malito! Ooo have so many memories of you. All the time you showed me your Id and told me it was your license to fly a plane and all the maldades you would do. How you loved coffee and cigarettes so much.
Rest easy tio. Give Mami and Papia big hug for me.

I remember Manuel because I lived with him and grandma with Georgie and he always played with my kids when they were small. He even held my kids when they were born. I’ll never forget he was such a beautiful man and funny. Also I’ll miss him so much and I already do. I’ll keep him in my prayers.

Tio Malito, the most handsome! Always called me Marie before calling me Lala. Grew up watching you and mom always “shaping” your nose, putting stuff in your hair to slick it back or telling me I was to young to know anything. I will miss you & that laugh.
