My Dearest Sandy, Treylingo and Family. My heartfelt condolences are with you and your entire family. Another Grand Angel has entered heaven. May your hearts be comforted knowing your Papito is now in the comfort of God's Care. May the Love and Peace of God comfort you knowing that he is comforting and strengthening you along this difficult journey. Even though your Daddy is beyond your sight he is with you in Spirit and never beyond the reach of your prayers. Know that neither time, nor distance, nor physical separation can diminish your hearts and souls connection with him. Divine Love will unite you Now and Always. When I met you Daddy he reminded me so much of mine. A Man of Great Stature, A Caring and Faithful Man, Full of Pride for his Entire Family. When I had the opportunity to visit with him I enjoyed every minute of our conversations, and they all had to do with his family. Awesome!!! His Love for You and Treylingo is undying. At times things may be difficult as I have experienced this loss myself, however My Dear Friend, May the Lord of Peace himself give you Peace and Strength at all times in all ways. May the Lord be With All of You. I Love You Sandy and Treylingo. LINDA AGUIRRE-PIKE & SONS
