In Loving Memory of
Carl Macios

If he was your father, your love and respect for him grew with the years as you came to realize what he had given you...
If he was your husband, the years were all good and the difficult moments served only to strengthen the bond...
If he was your grandfather, you had only a tiny bit of the love and happiness he would have given you and perhaps yours is the greatest loss...
If our sorrow is to be lessened by anything, it may be remembering the joy of loving and being loved by him.
