Your life was a blessing, You were a blessing to My Baby Jerry. ??Your memory will forever be a treasure. Thank you for always being there for my boy. You had a vital role in Jerry’s upbringing, making memories together that will forever be carried in Jerry’s heart. Jerry was your Tesoro, you never missed a game, his #1 fan, would call him everyday, check on his grades, lectures to get his act straight, showed him how to drive, stopped by the house just to give him a hug and tell him you missed & loved him, took him for snacks at the store, made him carnita asada, watched the cowboys together, yelled and cheered so loud, danced together, would take him his whataburger on game days, go cruising together; I can go on and on. ? El amor Que le mostraste de Abuelito a Jerry era muy bonito, era único! Siempre le decías “I love you Papito”. ❤️ ??Marine & The biggest die hard COWBOYS fan? May you Rest in Peace. God sure has a special place for you in heaven ?️We will miss you ? My sincere condolences to Gma Lulu and all the family. May the Lord grand you all the strength through this difficult loss.
