  1. My Dad was a fighter with a golden heart, a cowboy with unconditional loyalty for his family. He was stylish and stoic. My heart is still knowing he is now in God’s Kingdom, free of pain, receiving the Love and Embrace he deserves. We will miss you, Señor Bigotes.

  2. A son, brother, uncle, husband, father of six, and grandfather of seven has left us and is finally at rest. Manuel, you were the patriarch of my husband’s family, a family I am incredibly grateful for. You always greeted us with warmth and a smile, regardless of the pain you felt. You were at your best in one on one conversations about the important things in life. You were our designated grill master, errand runner, and babysitter. You were there for your grandchildren in a way that makes me look forward to that time in my life. As my father-in-law, thank you for being present for milestones my own father couldn’t be. Though you passed on Easter Sunday, a victim of this pandemic, we find comfort in knowing you are a victor in the next life. Rest peacefully knowing your legacy will live on in our hearts.

  5. Thank you Dad for everything you’ve done for your loved ones. You were such a wise, caring man who always tried to understand and help us whenever you could.

I hope now you are resting peacefully in Heaven. Te quiero mucho Pa, gracias por ser un hombre tan grande en nuestro vidas.
