  1. Papa
    I will miss you each day,and hold you close to my heart more and more each day. To the family we have to stick together and strong especially for Moms health. And knowing all that Dad taught us and gave us along the way with Respect and so much love to each one of us.
    Natures first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold, Her early leaves a flower, but only so an hour, Then leaf subsides to leaf, So Eden sank to grief,So dawn goes goes down to day. Nothing GOLD can stay…
    Your Daughter SIEMPLEME Maria

  3. I have been so blessed to have been able to call you my grandfather. I will miss your face. I will miss your voice. I will miss your sense of humour. You really were an amazing person. I will definitely miss your calls asking me for help with your computer. You knew I would always help you no matter where either of us were in the world. I am grateful for our last 1-on-1 back in July…… if I only knew that would be the last time.
    You have taught me so much growing up. But one of the most important lessons you have taught me is to really understand how important family is in this life. Thank you papi for everything. I will never forget you. I will treasure our memories for the rest of my life.
    Go be with God now.
    Go and reunite with the ones you have lost.
    Until we meet again papi.

    Te quiero mucho Abuelito ❤️
    Always and forever in my heart.

    Tu nieta Teresa
    …… o como tu me llamaste Teruca

    God saw him getting tired,
    and a cure was not to be
    So He put His arms around him
    And whispered, “Come to Me”.

    With tearful eyes
    We watched him suffer, and
    Saw him slowly fade away.
    Although we loved him dearly,
    We could not make him stay.
    A golden heart stopped beating,
    Hard working hands put to rest,
    God broke our hearts
    To prove to us,
    He only takes the best.

    RIP Papi. Grandpapi. Mi Abuelito. 💔
    I love you.

  4. Papi (Grandpa) thank you for all you have shown me over the years. I know we didn’t spend much time together as we lived in different provinces, but growing up when we did see eachother you never failed to teach me life lessons, you took me camping, fishing, hunting, thought me how to work on cars and so much more within the time we spent together.you are one of the toughest man I know and an incredible role model.
    One day hopefully you’ll open up the gates for me and we can see eachother again.
    I love you Papi and I’m truly going to miss you

  5. Love you so much Papi. Thank you for all the things you’ve taught me, all the laughs we’ve shared, and all the love you’ve given me. Thank you for the tight hugs and warm smiles every visit. I will miss you every day and I promise to make you proud. Papi you are so so loved. We are missing you so much down here.
    Please give grandma and grampa my love.

    Forever your,
    Jaquelina

  6. Va Con Dios Abuelito.
    Until we meet again…

  7. Mi papi, I love you and miss your presence so much. Thank you for all that you did for your family. We will see each other again, when the time comes. For now, your legacy lives on through your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. What a beautiful family you created. Te amo!

  8. A Letter to my Apa,
    Now that you’re gone all I know is I miss you so much. I never thought you would leave and I thought you had many more years to stay. The day that you left was the saddest of my life. I remember sitting at home and crying all day and night. I might be selfish but I wish you were here or that you stayed here with us. I know you loved me and I will always and forever will love you, so I’m trying to be strong just for you and to try to be there for my mom and my aunties. I hope you up in the there happy and no more pain. I miss you so much and I wish I had more time with you. You had to let go even though you were holding on for so long, but there’s not a day I don’t think of you and how you were so strong. I just want to tell you that you’re always in my heart even though I still cry I know we’re not apart and I know one day I will see you. I love you and I will say it over and over I love you Apa. Please visit Ama and each of your daughters as they all need you in a way to let them know you are okay.

    I will never stop thinking about you or the memories. They say the loss of a loved one often changes someone’s life i’d like to agree. I wish I can hear you say “chiquilla” and your laughter. I wish heaven had visiting hours, I just miss you so much. If heaven wasn’t so far away i’d be there everyday.

    I love you so much Apa
