    Our condolences to my cousins Danny Chris, Daniza, and their families. I’ve been trying to find the right words to say, but am still at a loss for words. I’m very saddened my my Tio passing but I find some peace in knowing he is no longer in pain and has gone home to our heavenly home. To my Uncle Danny you will be missed and I’ll always remember your smile. Love, Veronica

    So many great memories spending summers with my Uncle Danny. Always so welcoming and kind. And definitely had to give some lectures/guidance to Danny Chris and me. I will forever remember those days at the Quintero’s household.

    Hi Grandpa,

    It's your grandson, Andrew. It's been so long since I last saw you, and I'm not quite sure what to say. I was sorry to hear of your passing, but I understand you didn't suffer too much at the end, and I take comfort in that. I wish I could have known you better. And still I have some memories of us that I'll hold on to forever, like the time I mistook your glass for mine and got my first taste of alcohol. Rum and coke, was it? I seem to remember lots of laughter following in the wake of that debacle. That was fun. Or how you would blast Tejano music in the back room as I played in your backyard, unsure of what I was hearing but nevertheless feeling closer to you and my Mexican heritage because of it. These days I'm almost completely out of touch with my Mexican side, I'm ashamed to say, but hopefully, before I leave this world to meet you in the next, I can learn a bit more about where you, and therefore I, come from. I think it's what you would have wanted.

    I love you Grandpa. Rest in peace.

    Daddy, words can never describe the sorrow in my heart! I miss you more than you will EVER know. I'm so grateful the Lord allowed us 5weeks of Love, giggles, prayers, home cooked meals and spoiling you! I regret not being here sooner for you! I love you more than words can ever say. You will always live on in my heart.
    Love always,
    Your spoiled little Brat💞
