To my father-in-law who was the most wonderful, gentle, generous, and loving man I’ve ever known. I definitely will miss you, dad. I will never forget how you so warmly accepted me into the Quintana family when I married your son, David Quintana Sr. 44 years ago. You gave me a precious gift which touched me to my core when you gave me that beautiful silver Aztec medallion. No one else other than my own father had ever shown me such generosity, warmth, and unconditional love. I will never forget you or your wife, my beautiful mother-in law. May you both rest In eternal peace together. Thank you dad for being such a great father to my husband, a wonderful father-in-law to me, and a loving, gentle man to your grandsons and eight great-grandchildren. I love you, dad.
Dad, we will all miss you. You were the backbone of our family. You and mom raised raised us all well. When you see Mom in Heaven, tell her that the two of you did a great job in raising your 6 children. You always gave and never wanted anything in return, but our Love you could not turn away. We will always be grateful to God for giving us the best parents anyone could ever ask for. God Bless the two of you.
Your son, Daniel
