  5. Wow… It seems like just yesterday he was out driving his truck and having fun. This whole thing is shocking to me. My grandpa was a good man, he was the best man I have ever known! He always made everybody laugh and smile, he was a very lovable and caring person. I will always remember my grandpa as the funny and friendly person that he was! I can still hear him saying "Hey popita!" He will forever be in my heart and I miss him so much but I have to remember he’s in a better place now. Where he is not only my grandpa but also my guardian angel watching over me! I love you so much grandpa, may you rest in peace!
    – Love Always , Popita!
