|Let the memory of Eligio be with us forever|
"Dad, you are loved. I see you in my children and grandchildren. I was able to share my children with you and Rudy long ago, when we visited your home. I share my grandchildren with you in my heart. Children are a blessing sent from God above. Parents are ours forever no matter where they are. God has you in his tender hands. You are Loved ! From your daughter Elsie. I LOVE YOU"
"Uncle Eligio,R.I.P. YOU WILL BE MISSED,i will all ways remember,when you came to visit,and take me to your house to spend the weekend at your house,Rudy was a baby, and the love of mammy"s eyes, it was fun.you will aways be loved and missed, love your niece Carmen Edy"
"From neice Gladys (Máre's oldest daughter): RIP Tio Eligio, may you find peace reunited w Grandma, Grandpa, Tio Nolo & Tio Chano.
May the Lord be with you Always!"
"Written by Máre: Eligio looked like me. He brought me to the U.S. in 1947. We understood each other, very well. GOD forgive his weaknesses, Bless Him & keep him resting peacefully."
"I will always remember how happy he was whenever we would visit. Whether I was a child or a grown woman with my own children, the first thing he always said was, "The pool is waiting for you." I also remember lying on the floor and viewing his slideshows of Germany and his loved ones. RIP Uncle Eligio."
"I came to know Eligio in his later years. I found him to be an interesting individual. Ben & I would visit him & Hilda on our frequent trips to Florida. They always made us feel welcomed. He spoke of God & family. Showed us his paintings, of which there were many. He was easy to love, & found a place in our hearts. Ben is so happy they had a chance to celebrate their birthdays together."
"As the youngest of Marina's daughters, I will forever remember the Peace & Happiness my mother carried upon her return from visiting Tio Eligio. I was always so proud to hear & speak of his creative artistic abilities & will treasure painting images of past photos taken, forever. I too will treasure my Sony Sailors hat! XO! Sonia Acevedo"
"Uncle Eligio, I remember your visits to New York City, especially when you took us to Coney Island and bought us all candy and a sailors hat with our names. I remember your hugs. I will forever have you in my heart. Love always your niece."
