It is with greatest sadness that we say Good Bye to our Tio Francisco. One word to describe this man is “Joker” He was always looking for a laugh! Family and Friends were extremly important to him, he loved having people around.
It is hard to believe that just over 3 weeks ago I went and sat with him in the hospital for the afternoon. That afternoon and in the couple of days that proceeded we laughed as he poked fun at my father who had been cooking and cleaning for my mom as she recooped from her surgery. Even though he was not well ~ he still had the ability to make people laugh~
His prescense will be truly missed. His mischievous smile will be remembered for eternity.
I ask god to give you all comfort and peace in knowing that he no longer is suferring, but is where he wanted to be with his daughter Filomena.

God Bless,

Stan, Rose, Savannah, Courtney, and Cienna

p.s. In lieu of flowers I wanted to let you know that we have made a donation to the Cancer Society in Memory of Francisco Hilario.
