Tio Fran,
We love you and miss your beautiful spirit and smiles. You weathered the ups and downs of life gracefully , with your wittiness and great attitude. I know my Mami appreciated it, especially in her last days. I can see you now enjoying cafecito with Papi. You leave a wonderful legacy with your children and grandchildren.

To my Uncle Francisco,
Memories of your laugh, your love for your family, your insightfulness, your strength and your moments of tenderness will stay with me forever. You reminded me of Papi and made me wonder about the happy times you shared together and struggles in life you weathered as brothers. May you be drinking your cafe together, and with your parents and other siblings, free of pain and sharing the love that you have for each other and that your families will always have for you. Thank you Tio Fran for showing love for me and my family, and for being the man you were. We will never forget you and will always love you.

Querido Tio Frank, You were a beautiful human being who will be greatly missed. We will miss your jokes, your laughter, and the care and love that you showed to many, especially during trying times. We will also miss seeing the beautiful interactions you had with Tía Miriam: The times I saw you together, you were like two lovebirds recently married, joking with one another in a loving manner. A casual observer would never know that you two had shared a lifetime together with its ups and downs, joys and sorrows. You will be forever in our hearts. May you rest in peace! Love, your niece Mildred
