13 years. Hard to comprehend. You'll be in my thoughts and heart forever and feeling you are always near. We'll be at the shore next week, the week of Aug. 15. I'm not sure I'm up to boogie boarding even though I'm 65 compared to your 80. If we cook it will you come?

Christmas is past for this year. Uncle Reyes and Aunt Ruth always made it special!! I have many counted-cross stitch Christmas wall pieces from Aunt Ruth. I love them. Of course I have my Uncle Reyes's carving and Branum and Bailey hat!!! Remember the Choctaw Indian conversations with Aunt Ruth rolling her eyes. Their present was always the first one I opened as Aunt Ruth did such a great job shopping and knowing my sweet spot for the year. I liked the holidays because Reyes was around more than usual! Carry the spirit of these kind, loving, generous, hard working, and vibrant souls. Also, happy they are not here for the pandemic and 45.

I celebrate all the care that Colleen gave to my Uncle Reyes during his final days. Colleen is a rock star. Uncle Reyes lived an exemplary life. I am glad he is not here today to see what our country, for which he fought, has become. Love to all who knew Reyes and thanks for helping to recollect him. Judy

PS - See the photo I added to the gallery. These are two of my favorite possessions, both gifts from Reyes - hard to say which is my favorite!!!

Hi Grandpa. I miss you too. Your house isn't the same without you. Grandma hangs in there, but I know she doesn't want to. Probably b/c she keeps saying she'd like to die soon. Ah, Grandma. Have an oatmeal cookie up there for me today. I love you.

Hey Dad,

I miss you. Mom's not happy with her situation. No one is, but doing our best to care for her. She misses you. Why not take her on a date, if you get my drift. I know you do. I can share anything with you. I may miss the Fest this year. A bad tooth. But keeping up your tradition and getting it pulled today. Wish me luck. Your loving daughter, Colleen

Can't believe it's been 2 years, I really miss him, he was such a fun and caring person. I will always remember watching baseball games down at the shore, going down the beach and watching him going into the water like a little kid, and he was in his 80's. Take care, Reyes,

I have sweet memories of Reyes proudly showing off his wooden birds in the workshop in the basement. Calm, quiet and creative.
