We are so very sorry for your loss. I remember the first time we all met, it was great! I've always enjoyed all of our get togethers. We just saw Julio not that long ago when he stopped by the house to pick up Bubby. I will miss his great hugs. He will always be remembered.

Marie, little Julio, and all of Julio's family... My condolences and prayers are with you all. In this time of grief just hold fast to the fact that he loved you all. Bubby, your dad was such a wonderful man in so many ways. He loved you very much and just know that he will always be with you and watching over you. Marie, you know what was in your husbands heart. YOU are his WIFE and spent so many happy years with him. YOU are the love of his life and always will be. He loved no woman the way that he loved you and no circumstance in life will ever change that FACT. I am sure he is watching over you as you raise his son and smiling on you with the same love he has ALWAYS held specifically for YOU. Take peace in that and always understand where your place was in his heart. To his extensive family, his mother, siblings, aunts, uncles and cousins....you are far too great in numbers to name you all but you know how very much he valued his family and loved each and every one of you so dearly. His smile will be so missed, his patience and kindness and his overall aura of peace and wisdom was a beacon to us all.
His warmth and affection was such a beautiful quality that could have only come from the guidance and love of all of you. Thank you for building such an amazing man. He was truly a gem and a voice of reason for so many of us. My prayers and my thoughts are with all of you. God bless.... Xoxoxo
