|Let the memory of Albert be with us forever|
"I can't believe that it has already been 4 year since you've been gone! My heart still aches for you Dad! I love you and I am so sorry that I stopped commenting and leaving you special notes. It all caught up with me the last two years and I made some very poor choices in life. I'm getting stronger every day, and I've learned so many valuable lessons in life that I try not to regret, but simply continue to learn from. I'm a much different person now, thank goodness! I wish I had been a better daughter to you, because you were certainly an amazing father! My ultimate goal in life is to be a better mother to Connor. I have the most amazing son and he deserves much more than what he has been given. Thank you for being the one to always put love in my heart!"
"Well it's been awhile sometimes I have tried to write something here and I just can't. It's not good here things seem to get worse. I am so ready to be with you. No matter how hard I try I feel like it is never enough. Your not here to share the hurt and tell me to not let kids get to me I have done all I know how but there are days like today when I would like to throw on the towel. To be practically called a liar for something I have never done and will never do by the one I have been there for the most and it happens more than once. I am tired I need to put a stop to this like you told me so many times. I really need your cooler head and fair input now. Miss you as much as ever love you with all my heart and soul"
"Happy Birthday Big Al. I'm sure you are having a cold Bud Light today"
"Happy birthday uncle Al.. love and miss you"
"Happy 80th Dad! You are so loved and missed!"
"Its has been 3 years today that you've been gone! I love you and miss you with my whole heart and I know that Connor does too. He thinks of you often and we talk of you often! We can't wait to be with you again someday! You were an amazing father and Papa to us! All of our love to you today and always...."
"he use to stop by and say hey on his way threw back to yuma was a funny guy. left behind a wonderful wife and some lovely kids he is missed by so many especially his wife and his kids a lovely family"
"It's been a long rough summer! I am sorry I haven't written to you in a while! I miss you so very much! 10 more days you will have been gone 3 years! But, today we rejoice with the Angels as your brother has joined you in Heaven! Look after him, as you have always done with your loved ones! Until we all meet again!"
"Happy 79th Birthday Dad! I love you and miss you with all of my heart...I would give anything to spend one more day celebrating with you, until then, celebrate with the other Angels...you were the best Dad and Papa in the world! I love you forever-Tina"
"It's been a little while since I have written to you. It is almost your birthday, just a few more days. We will celebrate as we have always done, because you always liked to have a good time and have family together. I sure wish you could be here to make us all laugh and feel loved! Life is not easy without you, for some reason having you kept me from being afraid or worrying about things that I could not control. I miss that and you more than I can even explain! Love you Dad <3"
"Still here still missing you forever"
"Merry Christmas Dad! I love you with my whole heart and miss you today more than ever! Connor and I think about you every day! We love you so so much!!! Enjoy your day with the angels and loved ones, continue to guide us and watch over us!"
"One more holiday without you, miss you more than ever, but had a nice day with Les and family. We have many changes here but we are getting on with life just not easy without you. I keep waiting for the hole in my heart to get smaller but it is not. Please look down on we from above and help us all try to do the right thing, love you so much."
"Thinking about you today Dad and wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving! I would give anything in the world to be able to spend this day with you! We are here with Connor in Utah! I know he misses you so much too! We love you and think of constantly, you are always in our hearts <3"
"Yesterday marked two years that you have been gone. I still struggle every day without you. I know that you are watching over us and that are waiting until the day that we will all be together again! I love you and miss you so much!"
"I am missing you so much lately Dad...even when things were hard, I could always go to you and you would give me a sense of security. It seemed like after we lost you, I gained an amazing amount of strength and determination. I wanted to make you proud of me and reach as many goals as I possibly could. I'm kind of stuck right now and I am not sure why. There have been so many changes in my life and I should feel really blessed and so happy, but for some reason I have an overwhelming feeling of sadness. Maybe because you are not here to share them with or here to advise me or just here to wish me well. I love you and miss you every single day!"
"Oh my dear husband how all our lives have been so woven and intertwined' I wish with all my heart you were here to talk to, I have never needed you more, missed you more and loved you more. I know the sun will shine tomorrow and life will go on but right now it is a little tough. I will hang in and see it through just wish it was with you."
"Good Morning Dad! It is already September 2014, almost 2 years have past since we lost you...I still miss you as much as ever. Please watch over Connor and I each day. We need your guidance and support in our daily decision making. You never judged, just always provided the love and support we needed. We still need that! We love you..."
"Here it is Sept already so ready for summer to end. The past month has been hard sure wish you were here could use a shoulder to lean on. Life goes on no matter how much we hurt. I love and miss you as much as ever hope things here improve . Keep your hand on me as I am having my eye surgery today. You are forever in my heart, love you."
"Hi Dad! I am missing you so much lately! Many things are changing in my life and I wish you were here for support. Life is difficult, but you have always given me the strength to keep moving forward. Thank you for that. I love you so much!"
"I love you Dad and my heart still hurts from missing you so much! Connor and I miss seeing your happy face everyday!"
"Here it is the middle of July, hot as Haiti. Still can't believe you are not coming home We usually had a trip planned about now, wish we could take off in the new car and find something interesting to do. I think about going to Tim and Shari's but really reluctant to go alone. I miss as much as ever, its not easier I don't like life without you love you so."
"This is the second Fathers Day we have lived without you, miss you as much now as ever, it doesn't get easier. We try to hang in there but dammit I don't do a very good job. I love you forever miss you more then ever no words can describe."
"Happy Father's Day Dad! I miss you every day and need you more than ever to share things with. I know that one day we will walk in Heaven together. I love you so, so much! I couldn't have asked for a better Dad...you were the BEST! I cherish every memory of you. Thank you for always being there for Connor and I, no matter what."
"Good morning Dad! I have been thinking about you so often and dreaming of times that we have spent together as a family. I still miss you as much as ever and so many good things have happened in my life and I wish you were here to share them with. I know that you are so proud of my accomplishments and that because you are my angel, you have helped to make them happen. Please watch over Connor so far off on his own. He is learning to become an adult, please continue to guide him. I love you forever!"
"Its the middle of May Hot day. I traded the car in for a new one hope it wasn't a mistake. These things are hard doing it alone. Tina says Dad would want me to feel safe and go with gut feeling but I sure would like for you to be here and give me your opinion. Oh well its done , I miss you always love you forever need you ."
"Happy 56th Anniversary to you and Mom! I sure wish you were here to celebrate with her! I love and miss you so much Dad!!!"
"Well its April again time goes so fast and yet so slow. Miss you more every day. Life is so very sad and boring without you. I miss getting up and we deside to jump in the car or jeep and taking off for a short trip. So I will try to carry on without you here but I can't come to grips that you are not here, love you forever miss you always"
"Happy Birthday Dad! I love you and miss you more than you could ever imagine. I hope you have a wonderful time in Heaven today with all of the other Angels!"
"Good morning Dad! It will be your birthday next Monday and I wish you were here to celebrate with us. I am taking mom to a concert this Friday, we were supposed to see Ronnie MIlsap...one of your favorites, but apparently he has become ill. You will never guess who is taking his place...Micky Gilley, your other favorite! How crazy is that? I know you will be watching from above...enjoy! I love you and miss you so much!"
"This has been a tough 3 weeks could really use your fair and non judgemental concerns. I know the sun will come up tomorrow and time will take care of problems one way or another but I miss you. Guess this has been a poor me few days love you miss you forever."
"I love you Dad and I miss you so very much!"
"Happy New Year Dad! I miss you more than you can possibly imagine! It's so hard to go on without you, but I know you are watching over us everyday! Thank you for being Connor's Angel and keeping him safe..."
"Last day of 2013 we have missed you more than any of us can say. I guess you were the glue that kept us all together. I have had a really hard time this holiday season. I hope I can get it together and get some things done in the new year. Say a pray for all of us here. I will miss Connor coming by, he and Tina have kept me going but I am thankful for the oppurtunity they both have now. Love you more than ever miss you more than ever I always will."
"Merry Christmas Dad...we love and miss you more than you will ever know! Holidays will never be the same, you made this family whole. Dance with the Angels Dad -Tina & Connor"
"It's Christmas time and we are all missing you so much. I bought a new home today, I know that you would be so proud of me. Connor will be leaving to Utah after Christmas and I will miss him, but I know that he needs to have the experience of being on his own and seeing what the world has to offer. I love you so much Dad. Merry Christmas to you up in Heaven...may you dance with the Angels."
"It is so hard to go through another holiday season without you. I miss you every single day. Connor and I miss spending our weekends with you. I wish you were still here to help guide Connor through adulthood. I pray every day that he becomes the wonderful man, husband and father that you were! Happy Thanksgiving, I love you Dad!!!"
"I can't believe it has been a whole year since you have been gone. I know the pain and heartache of losing you will never go away while I am here on earth, but I take comfort in knowing that one day we will be together again, up in Heaven. I love you Dad and I miss you with all of my heart...I will forever be grateful for all that you have done for Connor and I. Until we meet again!"
"The year is almost over it has gone so slow in some ways and also faster than I can keep up with. I feel like I close my eyes you were here I open them and you are gone I know life will never be the same. I miss you now as much as ever you know you are loved by all your kids and me you are in our hearts and minds every day."
"I love you and miss you dad, I can't imagine going through another year of holidays with out you...I count the days until I will be able to hug you and talk with you again!"
"Dad I miss you daily!! One hard working man and great father. You are the best. Please know that Kim, myself and our boys think of you and miss you dearly."
"I worked at Perez with Albert. He was always in a good mood. He will be missed. He is in fruit tramp heaven. RIP"
"I remember buying him menudo on Saturdays in Guadalupe. We would always spend some time talking about how important family was to each of us. And we would always talk about the old days like working Perez and once the menudo was gone. Back to work. One of the things I always will remember is that no matter how many hours he put in he always had a smile on his face in the mourning. Love ya"
"I love you and miss you so much Dad, not one day goes by that I do not think of you and wish that you were here so that I could stop by and spend some time with you!"
"Its almost the end of August, I have not done anything to clean out things here, just can't work up to doing it. I miss you so much I know I need to get on with life but it is harder than I ever thought possible to live without you I didn't plan on this . I love you so much and miss you with every ounce of my being."
"I love you Dad! Missing you a lot today...I'm sure you already know, but Mom has a new doggie, his name is Jaxon. Of course she gets really mad at him all the time and you would call him a "Shit eatin' Dog." Truth be told, I guess he is one! But, I love him. He is funny and smart and he loves to play. I think he has the sweetest soul. He would have loved to hang out with you!"
"I happened to have a suprize visit from Mom and Tina this past Sunday. They picked me up along w/Steven and Alexander And we went and picked up some food,then they took me to the Veterans Memorial Wall in Brawley to see your name that Uncle Jesse and Cindy had ,then to Park , ate and visited for a bit. Missed you being there."
"I miss you Daddy and I would do anything to spend just one more day with you! I love you so much my heart hurts."
"Another month gone I am trying to stay positive but it is really hard, all the little things we did talked about, the things that happened with kids I had someone to share the hurt and hard times with, I will never get used to you not being here I thought losing Mom and Dad was hard but this is so much harder, I love you miss you can't get passed you not here to pick up the pieces ."
"Missing you so much today...I love you Dad!"
"Missing you so much, my heart hurts...I love you!!! Happy 4th of July Dad!"
"Father's Day was this month and I thought of you as I was out on the ocean. We spent so many good times at the beach and it is good that everytime I go to the beach for the rest of my life I will think of the fun times we had when you and Mom took us there. Whether it was San Diego or Mexico, we had fun as a family. I miss you and love you-Happy Father's Day."
"I miss you Albert. I thought about you, as I do alot, on Father's day when I called my dad. I wanted to call you too. You were a good friend and Father in law. I'll keep you in my heart always. I miss you Brother. Love You! :)"
"Its Fathers Day, another holiday without you, it has been a sad day heard from most of the kids, they miss you as much as I do, its hard not having you here to talk things over with I miss you so much wish I knew how to handle this better than I am but maybe it will get better I love you."
"Well it isn't getting easier, I miss you so much seems so lonesome without you. I would give anything to have you back without the pain you suffered. I love and miss you so much, I never could beleive how much it hurts to lose you but I am gratiful for all the years we shared,Thank you for all thegood times"
"Thinking about you today, like always...wishing you were here with us, especially with Father's Day coming up soon. I know you will be watching over us, just like you were at Connor's graduation. I'm sure that is why the moon was so full and bright that evening! Love you so much Dad."
"Hello Dad, it has been a little while since I have written to you...I miss you as much as ever and I think of you every day! Life is just not the same without you here with us. Connor and I miss you so, so much! I count the days until I will see you and hug you again! I love you forever Dad."

"Poem for Dad...in "Stories" 12-12-12"
"Thinking of you today. I know that this is supposed to be a place where one leaves tribute. My tribute to you is to return the love that you have always shown to me; that love will be with me forever. You were such a great man and father. You were my hero! Not one day has gone by that I do not have something that I want to share with you or share about you! I miss you and I love you dad..."
"If I could write a story, it would be the greatest ever told, of a kind and loving father who had a heart of gold. If I could write a million pages, I’d still be unable to say, just how I love and miss him every single day. I will remember all he taught me, I'm hurt but won't be sad, because he'll send me down the answers, and he'll always be MY DAD"
"We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday and days before that too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name… Now all we have are memories and your picture in a frame… Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part… God has you in his keeping, we have you in our heart."
"Today is the day that we Celebrate Your Life...I know that many people will be there to show how much you were cared for and respected! I love you dad, this day is all for you!"
"This will be a very sad Thanksgiving for Connor & I this year dad...you made all of our holidays very special by just letting us know how much you loved us. Family was always the most important thing in your life...you were an amazing father/papa and we miss you very much!!!
I am most Thankful for having had YOU in my life!"
"To My cousin Albert, we had some good times together through the years even so though I didn't get to see you very often since you moved out of Brawley, but I remember you coming to visit me and we had a shot of tequila every visit. I will miss you. Love your cousin Arnold Valencia"
"I love you so, so much Dad...my heart aches for you everyday, although I know that you are watching over all of us, cancer free and happy...my tears continue to fall! I will count each day until we are together once again~Your little girl"
"Thinking of you today Dad...I continue to call your cell phone everyday and hope that mom doesn't answer it, just so that I can hear your voice on the outgoing message! Connor and I make sure to remind one another how much we miss you every evening before we go to bed...I love you and miss you so much! Mom and I are busy planning your Celebration, we cry and we laugh every day!"
"Missing a very big part of my life today!!! Not that you are gone from my view but that you are well again Dad!!! Hoping you are spending time with Your parents, brothers and sister along with Nana & Papa Weldon!!! And all the friends you have that are in heaven... You will always be here and in our hearts.. Love to the man that has made me the man I am today... I think about you often."
"I love you Papa and I will carry you in my heart forever!"
"Papa, it was really hard for me to let you go and still is for me to get used to the fact that you are gone now, you were the last person I ever thought I could live without. I never in my whole life, imagined a day without my grandfather..you were such a fixture in my everyday life, and now there's sort of a gap or something missing from all I've grown to know in my short seventeen years."
I always remember when I went to Nani and Papa's, Papa always told me to GO HOME!, and always teased me! He stopped telling me to GO HOME, and teasing me when he got sick. I miss him teasing me and telling me to GO HOME! I love you Papa Albert, Makenzie"
"Papa, you were always such a big part of my family's life, and it will be very hard to move on without you there. Every memory I have of you is funny, happy, and a complete blessing to have. I am selfishly sad that you are not here anymore, but I am more thankful you can be at peace after such a journey your life has been. We will all miss you, here in the Brand household!"
"you can read my little laugh on the story page."
"I grew up during my teenage years with this wonderful family! I can still see your smiling eyes at all the bon fires we use to have in front of the Eddies shop! Easter in Mexico camping out with all of you was one of my favorite memories! When my Momma Becky Brown ( owner of Armandos") found out that you had passed away her first words were...." Oh no not my Chili Relleno man!""
"Wow, I have so many memories of your wonderful smile and sense of humor I can't even begin. I suppose the most genuine thing about you is the love for your wife, your kids, and your grandkids - and well of course Me!!!!!!!!!!! :) Seeing you getting sick hurt badly and now you aren't in any pain. You will be missed. This is not good bye, this is just "See ya later" xoxooxoxooxoxoxoxooxoxx"
"This is so very beautiful...as your family is....but wow...really brings a tear to my eyes,ok...tears. The foundation the Reyes family has shines through all the words and devotion you each had to your Dad. He was a blessing to all who knew and loved him and his legacy lives on in each of you. To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die.May he rest in peace. God Bless."
"Uncle Albert, I am so glad I got to see you last month. I know you were in so much pain and you still made me laugh as you always have. I am so blessed to have had you as my uncle, we always had fun with you. I am fortunate to have such a loving family and all of your kids were my playmates and we have had some great times together. ALL OF US WILL MISS YOU WE LOVE YOU"
"Uncle Albert...You are now @ peace...Up in that beautiful paradise...Probably chasing my brat of a father...I will forever have you in my heart...I still remember how you used to scare us with ur eyelids...You always made me laugh...Now heaven has a new angel...May you rest in peace my sweet uncle.<3"
"Albert it is so hard to believe that this time has come. It seems like just yesterday that you and Barb was here at mine and Sherrys wedding. You were always a great man in my eyes. I don' think anyone could have a bad thing to say about you.So hold your head high my angel.Give my other angels up there my love. We love u.Toby and Sherry"
"I'll never forget the times you would drive us to Jr. high with your coffee in hand and country music on the radio... the times you would pick on tina about being Mexcan :) You were a fun dad as my husband would say! You have been an amazing father, husband and grandfather! May heaven rejoice with a new angel!!! Your children are blessed to have had you as a father and role model!!!"
"Dad, words cannot explain how much Kim,myself and the boys will miss you. You left such great memories. You will live on through your children and grandchildren. You made us laugh. We will be telling stories about you through many generations to come. You were my dad, my friend, my hero, my everything. I hope I can make the types of memories for my family that you made for yours."
"We love you Albert! Time has gone by so quickly the past 42 years. We all know in our heart that our family will leave us someday but sometimes we don't want to face it. It never will be the same without you brother!! There are no words that I can express how I feel !!! We Love You & Miss You ! We will soon be with you again Albert until then May you dance with the Angels in Heaven."
"I love you with all of my heart dad and I will make sure that your legacy lives on in Connor and his children and their children...you will never be forgotten!"
Have a suggestion for us?
