We Will Miss Him Greatly and Cherish Our Memories

We will miss him more than words can describe. I will cherish all the moments I had with grandpa and I know he is watching over me. I will live my life everyday as I always have, trying to be like him, and making my family proud. Hope he knows just how much I love him.


Sorry for your loss

I’m so sorry for your loss, our loss. Uncle Vicente’s generosity knew no boundaries, he feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give shelter to the homeless and most of all, gave his love and care to all who knew him. Tio Vicente, I love you and will miss you deeply. Silvia Salazar de Schmidt
