My condolences to my Tia Tina and Cousins YoYo and Cecilia and family on the loss of your husband and father. I will miss Tio Cruz but I will always cherish the memories of him while growing up. He was such a nice Tio and he always had a smile that brighten the room. He will always be remembered and loved and know that heaven has gained another Angel.
Rest In Peace Tio
Love you,
