Dear Boob

It’s been four long years that we all have lived without you.  You will always remain in my heart and mind, remembering your silly ways, your care free attitude, and your selfless demeanor.  I always wish for your peace, a peace you felt as a child, no worries, just play. May God Bless you daily forall the good you were to everyone.  I miss you more and more everyday.  I Love You, Your Sis Di 

my cousin Freddy

I always thought he was the best! I loved going to my cousins house we always had so much fun.
He used to come by my high school and pick me up and we would cruise in his car.

He was always so thoughtful and happy.

But what impressed me the most was his devotion to his children.  You can tell he did a good job, because of the adults they are today and the endless love they share for one another.

We need more Fathers like him in this world.

We never lose the people we care about, their Love leaves an indelible imprint on our hearts and in our memories.         .

Uncle Freddie

Freddie... I have never met a man such as him... to always be so self-less and caring toward others that he would climb mountains for the people he loved if he knew that it would bring them happiness. 
I remember Freddie to be so patient... like, ultra ultra patient. Nothing got under skin. His laughter was contagious and resonant and it was never hard to make him giggle. I always admired the way he spoke spanish too. Freddie was approachable, fun and very easy to talk with. He was a very hard working man that would some how always (and never failed) to make ends meet. He was a humble man that never wanted to be in the spotlight.
Freddie is one of the best prime examples of a forgiver and a forgetter of wrongs. He never held grudges. I saw that his mission was to always make his family happy. He was an excellent supporter and giver.

One out of the many membories I have with Freddie was when we were at my grandparents house with my close friends, Brandon and Tia Amie and Freddie taught us how to play 21. He pulled out this huge plastic coca cola bottle that has super heavy with coins he had collected for a long period of time. He was the dealer and he would faithfully make everyone laugh.

Another recent memory I have of Freddie was this past Christmas, we were at my parents house and we were playing "culillo." He was playing it for the first time and he was somehow so lucky and excellent at rolling the dice. He almost won but because he was so laid back and carefree he rolled again and ended up losing but giving the win to my grandma. Freddie was always so much fun to be with.

I very fond memory I have of Freddie was when we cleaned the van that belonged to him and Tia Amie. They were living in Detroit and we were staying with them for a couple weeks. After cleaning the van he gave me and my sister such a generous amount of money. Trisha and I could not believe it! 

I also remember when my cousin Brian and I snuck into his phone and went on his Instagram app and took a selfie and uploaded it. It took him forever to realize that we did that... haha... :) 

One of the very last few conversations I had with him on the phone was before he went to California to be with his daughter, son and family. His simple request was of self-less nature... he simply asked for me to watch over his wife Tia Amie and Brandon and to take care of them for him. I remember hearing his voice tremble and waiver out of love and concern. 

I know that Freddie holds a special place in my heart and I will genuinely miss him very very much. I hold onto the hope that one day we will see each other again. You were a very beautiful person Freddie and your presence is surely missed.
I love you very much!

Ready Freddie

Shared by Trisha Cardona on April 16, 2016

Freddie was such a fun and outgoing uncle to me. Super loving and always in a good spirit. He was always positive, no matter what was happening and had an easy solution to problems. 
One thing I remember most about him was his laughter. It was very contagious! Especially when we would play games like, 21 together. Or family cherades.
One particular story I remember was when Freddie, TIa Amie and Brandon were living in the Detroit area. They had a white van and Carla and I were staying over for a week or two during the summer. Carla and I were trying to raise money (like typical teenagers), and so we offered to clean the van. After two hours or so, Freddie being so sweet, gave us a generous payment. And then when the van was all clean and we were ready to go on our next adventure, we yelled out, "Ready, Freddie?!" =) 
I know we will see Freddie again soon, ready for another adventure. 

According to 1 Thessalonians 4: 16,17
"For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of an archangel and with the trumpe call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever."  

Another memory I have was when Freddie and Brandon were teaching me how to ride the dirt bike. I thought it was very brave of them to teach me... =) Freddie would hold the bike until I was ready, and VERY patiently (he was always very patient), he would tell me what to do and put his trust in me. And so that day I learned how to ride the bike. Thank you Freddie!!

I love you..

I met Freddie for the first time in California, Sherman Oaks to be exact, he would come and work in the building's pool, he always had a smile to give. I never knew someone with such a beautiful sincere soul as him.
He realy cared for the people in his charge to the point of forgetting himself.
I liked to talk to Freddie, he would talk about anything and have profound knowledge
of everything, he was so easy going.
The last time I saw Freddie he was sitting in a hospital bed deep in thought, we prayed together.
The last time I talked to Freddie  he sounded distraut, I told him Nicole was desperately looking for him.
He was a person so full of love.
I'm so honored to have met this great man.

Good bye Freddie, you will always live in my heart.
