  9. Gus,
    You will always be in my thoughts, your smile, your jokes, your beautiful presence…You were a great person and never had anything bad to say. I wish I could have seen you before you passed, but everything happens for a reason. Memories can never be lost, only physical appearances. I will see you again and when I do, I will be offering you the biggest pumpkin cheesecake you have ever seen. My condolences to the family. It will get easier. Thank you for being another father and grandfather to my family.

    You have been my pillar of strength for so many years, now you are gone. In life you were my provider, my friend, my father, forever you will live in my mind and heart,in death you comfort me and showed me that it is ok to grieve.
    You are loved by so many and will be missed every day, God has accepted hiw lost sheep into his flock, and I know that you are once again together with the ones that left you early, you are a great man and your heart and soul were filled with love and care.
    Take care my father, for I know that you are finally at peace and that the suffering and heartache are over.
    I love you dad, you are my father forever.
