    I will forever remember all the life lessons you taught since I was knee high. I know you never wanted Belen and I to move away so far. But we have had a good life because of all your and Moms sacrifices. We love ❤️ you from California, to Florida and to South Carolina.

    May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace.

    Grandpa, Gus, or Gus-a-roni (depending on the day),

    Thank you for the memories. Growing up with you was priceless. Remembering working on your yard with you and you treating us with burgers and fries afterwards. Eating watermelon in the front yard with grandma and you telling us don't eat the seeds or a watermelon would grow in our bellies. We would have sleepovers almost every weekend. I can still hear your chair squeaking in your room. Johnny and I running down the hall whispering "he is getting up! He is going to know we are up". So many fun times. We were blessed to have lived so close to you and grandma. To my aunt's, uncles and my mom for your loss. Grandma I love you and I hurt for you. I shout out to the heavens Thank you grandpa and I love you!

    I will miss you. So many years, so many memories. One in particular, the “Wipe Out” song laugh you did, it was perfect! You were an excellent driver, too, (like my sister), your full undivided attention to the road was a priority. I know I told you this, but I’ll say it again. Thank you for putting up with me & my kids for years. I know I lived at your house almost every weekend! I pray that our sweet Jesus will receive you in his loving arms and grant you peace. Blessed are you to share your first Thanksgiving & Christmas with our Lord! Rip brother in law. Till we meet again. Healing prayers for my sister Alicia and all my family everywhere who loves and will miss Gus. Maria Neida
