"I will join with this fine man's family and friends in his memory.  I had no idea that his birthday was May 22nd.  That make's his memory even more special to me.  I will always remember Mr. Mojica since the day I actually shook his hand in his bakery in Mayaguez.  God Bless him and may God keep him forever."

"I remember as a little kid making home videos to send to grandpa so he could see how we were growing and what we were doing. I also remember finally meeting him for the first time in Puerto Rico as a young man.  I remember his smile and his great sense of humor and man could he provide a good meal. Best rice and beans I ever had (sorry pop) ;).

P.s.  The photos on this site are great!  Please if
You have some, put them on...

Rest In Peace Grandpa!"

"I only remember Mr. Mojica where we had met first in Newark, NJ from the old neighborhood and again on three occasions in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico where this hard working man owned a busy bakery.  I can only remember shaking hands with him,  and had no real conversation.  But.......I was honored to have met this good man,  and I won't ever forget him.  He and I smiled at each other,  and that was all that was needed."

"I can't say that I knew grandpa very well. After all, I hadn't truly met him for the first and only time until I was 17, but I do remember him. I remember his passion for hospitality and spending time with others. It's a passion he surely passed on to my father, who, in turn, passed it on to most of us as well. I guess what I'm saying here is, maybe we don't have to physically know someone to know who they are. Maybe I carried a small piece of him with me off the island that day, and maybe through history, and years of great stories at the dinner table and around campfires, perhaps I knew him better than I thought. You will be forever missed grandpa,...but not missed forever, for we will be reunited once more in a place far more Glorious than this,...never to be parted again. We love you!

Daniel Mojica"

"Even though I was very young, I can still remember the smell of the bakery in Puerto Rico.  Being behind the counter, which was taller than me..and him giving me dough to "bake" with.  He would even put it in the oven and bake it....or so he told me....come to think of it...I never did see the final product...LOL  Thank you for giving me the love of baking too grandpa....."

"My Father the baker.
He was not just a baker, he was an artist. The pride he took in everything he did still sticks with me today. I feel that sometimes, I walk in his shoes because I strive for perfection. My fondest memory happened when I was about seven years old. My father belonged to the Cake Master's Union in Manhattan when it when on strike. One morning at home about two or three in the morning, I smelled bakery goods being baked. My father was cooking donuts and danishes. I watched as he placed them in a card board box, put on a small winter jacket, placed a small scarf and hat on and walked out of the ground floor apartment and walked out into a snow blizzard. He was going to deliver his goods to the diners for breakfast. That lesson stuck with me forever. Dedication and Responsibility to family. Some faults like all of us, but a good man. I too will miss his sense of humor.
