I have been at a loss for the right words to express my sadness and condolences to my Zia and cousins. My Zio is very special to me and will be greatly missed. I will treasure his sweet smile, gentle kindness and his happy disposition. I will miss "Hey Doll" when he greeted me with that sweet and loving smile and kiss. I am remembering little snippets of moments of all his kind ways. The little things like giving my son tractor ride after tractor ride as a small child. Wanting some of my college artwork to display in his home and when he wanted my favorite piece I had to give it to him. He had an entrepreneurial spirit that was passed on to all his children. Our memories of him are numerous and precious and will always be treasured..
