  1. Please accept my heartfelt condolences to You Lupe, Mike and all of Inez’ loved ones. I am remembering how many good times I spent with your familia growing up. I lost my dad in ’97 and mom just last year. It’s not easy saying goodbye to those we love and who love us so very much. Inez lived a long life probably in great part due to your great love and good cooking Lupe. Although we are Like candles in the wind, our light, having its source in our Supreme Father, can never be extinguished, or withered by the wind. Sending much love and aloha.

  2. We were sorry to learn of Bud’s death. I know that he is well again, but your heart has a huge hole in it. May the memories soon bring more smiles than tears.

    Sharon and Jerry Campbell

  6. Peace and Healing, Lupe,
    How well I remember Bud when I was a Spiritual Leader at Holy Family Church. You and Bud would pick me up and take me out to eat at lunch time. He always had that beautiful smile and was quite charming. But naturally, I also added to his personality. I will remember him even in the midst of his past few years of suffering. You were a very good Care Giver for him.
    Kahlil Gibran says: You know the secret of death. But how shall you find it unless you seek it in the heart of life? For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sunlight? And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, so that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered? “On Death,” the prophet, Kahlil Gibran]

  7. Dear Lupe, Mike and family,
    The Ramirez family is so thankful that the Lord allowed Jose Ines to bless our lives for so many years. He had a warrior spirit and was a Christ centered man who was a tremendous example for all of us. I am grateful that mom and I had the opportunity to visit with Jose Ines two weeks ago. His kindness, smile, wisdom and love was radiant on that day. May the Lord bless and comfort you during this time. We love you. Ana Maria, Frank, Rick Ramirez and family
