    Delia, Jr., and Rene,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was a great man. He always made me feel as one of the family when I was always at your house growing up. Even years later when I would see him he was loving and always had me laughing. I can’t tell you it gets easier because that never helped but trust in God and keep his memories alive. Love you guys and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
