My dear Uncle Juan, how dear you were to me. You always expressed your love for me. The hugs and the kisses, i will certainly miss them. I loved looking into your face and looking at your eyes. They told me everything. I was your dear sister’s daughter and I reminded you of her. But all is not over. I will see you again. But not in the body you left us with. I will see you as our Almighty God wanted us to be, young, full of vim and vigor. And your sister and brother will be there too. We will embrace you with open arms. You will resume life as if it never stopped. It won’t be long my dear Uncle. With all my love I look forward to seeing you again.

My uncle Juan I will miss so much. Will miss his jokes and great stories of the past. He was always there with my father, his youngest brother. They shared everything with each other. He was so proud of his daughters and his garden and orchard. When I visited him in Reading or Puerto Rico, he always wanted to give us something he had produced with his own hands. His coffee, pasteles or coconut candy were made with much love. He said spending time in the garden and the orchard were his favorite things to do and sharing the fruits of his labor with others gave him
pleasure. I learned so much from him
