  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. He was such a caring, helpful man that loved his family very much. He helped me several times, once when I locked myself out of the house when I first moved to the neighborhood and when we cleaned up the back yard to put in the play set. Heaven got another angel for sure. I’m just down the street if you want to visit or just sit on the front porch.

    Tío Saúl yo mi hermano y hermanas tuvimos el gran privilegio de crecer con un gran Tío como Usted. Tío Saul fue un gran tío, padre, abuelito/bisabuelito a su familia que tanto ama y también un gran hermano a mi Papoa y un amigo ejemplar. Siempre voy a extrañar esa gran sonrisa radiante de el. Cada vez que nos veíamos nos recibió con un gran fuerte abrazo y esa sonrisa radiante, este era el modo que el saludaba a todos. Te vamos a extrañar tanto Tío Saul, un día nos volveremos a ver otra ves. Que gozes con los angelitos del cielo. Que Dios te tenga en su reino y La Virgencita te cubra con su manto. Estamos con ustedes Tía y mis primos y familia Nava.
