I just found out. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember meeting Uncle Leo at my Grandma's (his sister) house. His passing brings up all the sadness that I had when my dear Grandma passed. Twins are like that, I suppose. Goodbye, Uncle Leo.

Artie, commiserations on the passing of your dad. The last time I saw him was at your house near St. Louis street back in 1964 when we were 5th grade students at St Annes. Remember the good times.

Grandpa, thank you so much for all the wonderful child hood memories. I feel very blessed having been a part of our family. Wish we had more time together, to make up for the time I lost, but you will always live on in my heart! I love you...Julie

I never met Mr. Baez, but I know his daughter-in-law Joanna, and her daughter Julianna. I pray you are all comforted during this time of separation. Jesus said that He was going away to prepare a place for us - He meant that. Because of that, we who know Christ will see Mr. Baez again. God bless you!
