Papa, Thank you for being a great grandpa. I will never forget your great kisses. You would never give me a peck it was always a good kiss but I would tell you it was a peck just so I could get one more kiss. Thank you so much for all the great memories. I will never forget you and I will always love you. I hope you come to visit me any time. I hope you have a great time up in heaven. Soon, the rest of the family will be up there with you.
Love,
You grand daughter, Hannah Garza. I love you with all of my heart. Remember that please.

Hey Fat Boy! Save us all a spot. We can’t wait to see you again. Back to the days of selling cotton candy, pharmacy runs that doubled as roller coaster rides, pockets full of wings, babies on your lap, and walks through the woods. You have been the Dad that I didnt have for the last 22 years, I love like you are my own father. I will always make your granddaughters 1 st in life, keep them safe and on the right paths in life. You will always be proud, I promise! And I know you will be there to watch them while we can’t be. Have a great time now that you have left that old broken down body. We will all file into your life again just like we did while your life was here. I love you papa!

Hun, I love you with all of my heart and I always will. I promised never to marry, not that marriage is bad, it’s very good but, I will kick anybody in the booty if they even take a look at me. I will never look back, I will just cradle all of your memories in my heart and you will live on forever with me and your childeren, grand childeren, great grand chlidren. My heart felt thanks to my favorite nephew Ray Garza jr. Who worked so tiredlessly to get Papa his full military burial. My husband would have loved to hear his 21 gun salute and his special TAPS song. But., I know you were watching from the portals of heaven. May god keep you untill we meet again. I love you. You said good night to me and good morning to jesus. walk very slow along the road to heaven and I will catch up to you soon. Rest under neath the evergreen trees! LOve you forever Papa! Love, Your loving wife the youngest sister till’ we meet again. I love you with all of my heart Papa! Love, Della
