Trini and Family:
I am saddened to learn of your Father’s passing. I recall meeting him a time or two in years past – a very nice man indeed. Hopefully you are doing as well as possible. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.
Trini, I was very sorry to read about your Father’s passing. No matter how old we are when we lose a parent, it is always extremely difficult. May God bless and comfort you and your family during this time of great loss.
My deepest condolences on your loss. May God the source of all comfort be with your family to comfort and strengthen you during this time of sorrow. Psalm 34:18..
Vicki, Ricky, Tinker, Trini, & Dee… I’m so sorry to hear about your dad passing. I have so many wonderful memories of time spent with your family when we were growing up. (the Navarro, Willoughby, Davis, Filliben, and Mattison families) I’ll pray that each of you find some peace and comfort in the thoughts and prayers of your family and friends. Love to all
Dear Trinidad and family, We are so very sorry for the loss of your father. Ramon was mine and my sister’s karaoke buddy. He blew us away when we heard him sing! We had a lot of good times with him. The last time I talked with him several months ago, although he said he had fallen and fractured his hand and other injuries he was still chipper and jolly. I was thinking of him a few weeks ago and now I regret not calling him. It broke our hearts when we saw his obituary. He was a precious soul and very talented. We lost our father at age 89, he was a talented musical and taught most of us kids to sing harmony, to play a guitar, bass and violin. I certainly will miss talking to Ramon. May the Lord comfort you and your family during this sad time.
Love and prayers, Dianne and Donna
Praying for each of you to feel the comfort and peace of our Heavenly Father while you grieve the loss of your Dad. Enjoy the memories that make you laugh and feel warm and fuzzy. There should be many of them. Your Dad had such a crazy sense of humor and he certainly made me feel like I was one of his own kids when we were growing up. I looked up to him, I admired his talents, and I loved him dearly. I only regret that I did not make time to visit Dad during his last years. But, I know I’ll see him someday!
Vicky, Ricky, Tinker, Trini, and Denise – you are all special people because of your parents. Do not hesitate to contact me and to reconnect.
