  • To my best friend Victor and family… I have known Victor since the 7th grade and we have remained friends for approximately 33 years. Not only do I feel lucky to have been a part of the Diaz family but am grateful for their friendship. I have fond memories with Victor Sr. as he was so good and gentle to me. Victor Sr. while quiet at times had no idea what an inspiration he was to me. Victor will be missed.

  • I will never forget the first time I met Tio. I was a small child and he was dating and engaged to Titi. I would sit between them and didn’t want her to touch him. He was my boyfriend. Oh how he loved that attention. Later I was the flower girl at their wedding! I thought I was the one marrying him, figured out quick that was not the plan. He would drive around in his car also his Taxi. He will always hold a special place in my heart ♡. He was always there for anyone in need. He drove our baby girl home from the hospital on July 3rd 1985 on his birthday. Later he gave us that very car he drove her home in, since we didn’t have a car. He showed Jay my husband to work hard and provide financially for our family just as he set the example. He was strong yet the kindest most gentle man I have ever known. His laugh was so mischievous and jolly. He always made everyone feel like you were the only one in the room. The last words he said to me and frequently were. “Tu sabe que te quiero much mami”. I know Tio! Te quiero much siempre tambien! We never said goodbye because we will see each other again for eternity in heaven. Rest my sweet Tio you deserve to rest!

  • So Sorry for your loss. With deepest sympathy to the family.

  • To my Titi Edith and Diaz family I am beyond words of how sorry I am for your loss. I cry as I’m writing this because my uncle was one of the best true men I have ever looked up too. Through the tough times as a child growing up he always greeted me with the biggest smile and open arms and he never judged me but always encouraged me to be the best I can be. I can’t recall a time that I never seen him smile and was always one of the most positive people that I have ever met. To my Uncle Victor in heaven thank you so much for taking time to sit and talk with me and taking me to parks when I was a little boy. You were the father that I wish I had and I’ll never forget what you meant to me. My unconditional love always and forever until we meet again….your nephew Tommy. Love Tommy and Kerry
