A letter to our Father………

There are not enough words in the world to express how much you are loved by your family. You instilled in us a strong work ethic, taught us the importance of providing for the family, preparing all those wonderful meals we enjoyed for many years, but not sharing your cooking secrets with us, and raising us to be strong, independent, self-sufficient individuals. We all thank you for being our father, grandfather, great grandfather and great-great grandfather. We will always treasure the time we were given with you every day. You and Joan are now reunited together and can start a new journey with Christ.

Our love to you always,

Your Family

Atencio family, I will always cherish the time I was first introduced to Scott’s in-laws , and Mr Antencio was making Chicken fried steak with gravy, I can honestly say I have never tasted that meal again the way he prepared it. Over the years I can attest that he taught Annette well in work ethic and cooking.
My Sincere Condolences,

Tio Charlie I will always remember you kind and loving supportive of all our work and what we accomplished. You were so good to Joan’s sister Lila and all her family and we love you for that. We adore our cousins and will always look for them and check on them as long as we’re on this earth. I will scratch some tickets for you and drink a cup of coffee in thinking of you.
