"My dearest Dad, it has been a year since you departed this world, leaving us with a void, aching and mourning our loss but nevertheless strengthened by just being together. Today as in all the past days, I miss you very much, especially when I think of those times we would carry on conversations, coming out happy or simply satisfied from having heard each other out. You are with me still, I can imagine or "hear" your voice ever so often. You are our angel watching over all our family in all the years to come. You haven't left us, merely gone to Heaven where no ill or hardship exists. We carry you forever in our hearts, for all eternity. We love you Dad. Rest in the peace of Our Lord."
"It hurts to think that you are not here anymore. Although I can’t help but smile with tears in my eyes to think of how we all cherished each and every moment of our lives together when you were alive. We miss you dad. We shall name a STAR after you so when look up in the sky, we see you. God has given you a new life in his kingdom and a pure and happy soul. Do you know that when I was typing this message for you, my Pandora station was playing our song for you, The Prayer? You are here with me , I can feel it. God is my witness. Tears of joy......"
"Dear Brother Ricardo,
Your presence and wisdom will be truly missed. You were a great inspiration to our group. Your remarkable stories and experiences you shared with us will always be in our memories forever. May you rest in peace!
From your brothers & sisters in Christ from Plano, Texas"
I will always remember growing up with Dan and Tom and all the time we spent with you and with Lola. The kindness and care you shared with us. All of the great memories we had in Hawthorne. I will always hold you in my heart and in my memories. You will always be with us as I will never forget how much impact that you and Lola had on me and my brothers. I love you Lolo and although I miss you, I know you are with us.
"My forever dearest Daddy,
No words can fathom how much I love you. Thank you for your unconditional love. You have taught me so much--your amazing thoughtfulness, generosity, humility, kindness, your love and drive for your work, and most of all, your deep faith in God. Your intelligence and creativity have been a constant inspiration to me. You were the best in what you did. Thank you for your many, many sacrifices for us. I will painfully miss you. I promise that I will take care of Mom. May God bless you with His loving grace and everlasting peace.
My love, hugs and kisses, your daughter, Tatot"
I will miss your kindness, generosity, humility, and unselfishness. Will miss your warmth and sense of humor and the sparkle in your eyes. Will miss your amazing genius and wisdom - you were so creative and full of ideas - no challenge was too great for you. I learned so much from you. Thank you for being the best father-in-law.
"Thank you dearest Lolo for taking care of us, your granddogs, especially when our mom, dad, and julia were away from home. You and Lola were so doting and were spoiled by your treats. You loved to play with us, stroke our furs, and give us tight hugs and kisses. You were there to clean up outside after us. The warm baths you gave us were the best. We will miss all these. We will miss your presence and your scent. We will miss seeing you relaxing in your blue reclining chair and hopping on your lap. We love you Lolo.
Libby and Bilbo"
"To Our Dear Lolo,
Thank you for being there for us and shaping us to what we are today. We have learned so much from your many special attributes especially your incredible selflessness. You were always so proud of us, as we have been always proud of you for our grandfather. You are the best Lolo! We will miss you very much.
Our deepest love,
Martin and Julia"
"Dear tita Tess, my cousins and families. it was so nice to see you all together this afternoon, although it was a sad occasion. My mom, was the eldest and tito Ric was the youngest, and for some reason, they became very close, that attachment lasted throughout their lives. He has left a large void here on earth, and will be terribly missed by all the people whose lives he touched."
"A special dad is hard to find.
I wished you could have stayed forever.
My heart bleeds each time I remember that you have gone.....
But your loving and caring fatherly role will linger in my heart for eternity.
I will never forget you, not ever ,daddy.
A special smile, a special face, a special someone I can't replace.
I'm thankful for the years God graciously gave us and for the knowledge that one day I'll see you again in a place that nothing is ever broken.
I love you dad and I will always will.
You filled a space in my heart that no one will ever replace."
"God gave us time, golden and fruitful, to share special moments of love and joy. Being with you once more after 9 years of not seeing you became even more special because of that fact. Even if we were not able to talk as fully and as often as we both wanted towards the end, you just shook your head and we understood each other. From me, your eldest child to you, my precious Dad... love , peace and perseverance prevailed to the end. God bless you Dad, forevermore."
I will always remember how very happy you made me with your wise words. Most especially during my own illness, you saw that I took hold of it courageously , with much serenity and trust in the Lord. I cannot thank you enough for being the best Dad to us all. Forever I carry you in my heart, as God carries you in his everlasting arms. I miss you very much and will continue to do so as the days fade into years."
"To My Dear Lolo,
Thank you for being a great grandfather throughout your lifetime. I will truly miss our snack and dinner outs as well as the so many good times we had together. You made me realize that I should always be myself and keep my head up high at all times. I will always love you and miss you! I love you so very much.
"My dear Mang Ric,
Your unconditional friendship will be missed by all of
us in Dallas. We will treasure the memory for a very,
very long time. May you rest in peace.
Alex and Jane"
"Dear Lolo Ric,
Although we are far apart across the globe, we hold you close to our hearts and will forever cherish the memories we have of you. We remember our trip to vegas with you and Lola Tess – it was a happy one that we only wish could've lasted longer. We also remember all the times we shared together during our holiday in LA, which made our brief trip the best we ever had.
Thank you for being the father to us as you are to Cesar, and know that we will always love you and miss you deeply. Now you are resting with the Lord, but you will always be here with us, too.
Cesar, Jennifer, Jeremiah, Jericho & Joaquin"
"Dearest Lolo Ric,
Thank you for being the greatest Lolo that any grand child could ask for. You will never be too far as we all carry you in our thoughts and our hearts. I know you are with our Lord watching over all of us.
I miss and love you Lolo.
Thank you for all the help and support you have given me and rica at the early stages of our marriage, most specially when you helped me qualify for a job in kuwait. I will miss the unconditional love you have always showed me, tim and Kc....
"You will be missed. You are now with the Lord and everyone of our family who have departed. My prayers are with you and your family. Rest in peace and God bless you."
"We will miss you Tito Ric. As dad said, you were his bestfriend. Dad and mom will miss talking to you on the phone. You are now among the angels up in heaven. Here's a message from mom, " Rick I took a chance and dialed your cellphone and hoping it was still on, and heard your voice, same as what we've heard before". We love you and we miss you. We are happy that your now with the Lord. Please don't forget us of Momoy. Pray for us. You are now our guradian angel. Rest assured of continued prayers for you. May you rest in peace.
Sonny and Cecille Ylagan"
