Tia Maria, Aurelia, Lucy, Steven and Family... My wife and I send our deepest condolences for your loss. One of my favorite memories of your dad is when he would take his dentures out to make me laugh when I was little. He had such a great sense of humor and when he got together with Uncle Tony and my dad (the three amigos) they were hilarious! My heart aches for you all during this difficult time and may he find eternal peace in heaven with grandma and grandpa. With love , Ana & Lisa Lopes
Daddy, I can't believe you are gone...I miss you so much....This is very hard for us all....I Love You so much always and forever....💔💔💔💔😭😭😭😭😭
