NEVER LET YOU GO AGAIN
You adored me that's for sure,
Now what I wouldn't give,
We were doomed from the start,
But we both loved our GOD,
The way I did before...
This is how I remember you best,
Love and miss you,
It's been (almost) 34 years since you have been gone.

My brother-in-law Manuel ... every time I see your daughter, Sandra Parra, I see you also. She looks so much like you. I'm sure from up there you know you have three grandchildren. Very lovely too.
Your sister in-law Gloria

You will always be in our hearts. I know you know this but I just had to let the whole world know you are a great grandfather. Your grandson Johnny is a proud daddy of a baby boy. The 3 of them are doing good. I want to say that your grandaughter Cheyanne has done so well that she is teaching catechism, your grandaughter Samantha is in kindergarten and she is a handful, but has very beautiful long brown blondish hair. Your daughter Sandra is doing very good also. She works for Kaiser Permanante, excellent position. We love you, brother in law.
Love, your sis in law,

The date is coming up again. We miss you much. You now are a great grandfather. He is a doll. I don't have to say much because I know you can see from up there.
Your sister in law,
From his sister-in-law,
