  9. Words cannot describe the sorrow I feel. I loved you as my own father and when my father died you told me I still had a father because you would be there for me. That was the kindest thing anyone had ever said to me. I found out pretty quickly how your sense of humor was, you loved to joke around. You were quick and funny but so very loving. I have the utmost respect for you. You treated me as your own daughter. You and Anna showed such tremendous love to your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Your example will live on. I love you always and will miss you but the memories will comfort me. I pray that my boys will take comfort in knowing that you lived a great life, served your country, had an amazing wife and family and that you loved them more than they could ever know. You (as well as my mom and dad) will watch over us as our guardian angel. It is not goodbye, but until we meet again. I am blessed to have known you. Love you

  10. Sorry, comadre, goddaughter Ada G.,Fito,and all the. family. Sorry we coudn’t spend more time with you. I miss the happy, countless hours we spent on Montgomery St .joking, and talking about nothing and everything, the C.Y.O. meetings, football games, dances, double-dating etc. Sylvia remembers Peter jumping on our bed when they were kids. I also remember we went to the train depot when he was on guard duty guarding the army tanks. I also miss my wife, Mary, but sometimes I feel that as long as I remember her she is still alive in my mind and in my heart. So, as long as we remember Jimmy he will live in our hearts.

  12. Our condolences to Flores family. . While he may be gone from our sight he is visible through the long lasting memories made. May God grant you peace at this time. Love you more. . . Ortega-Huddleston Family

  13. Anna and Family: We are truly sorry for your great loss. We will miss Jimmy and his smile at our Senior Partners luncheons. Our sincere condolences.

  14. My Deepest Sympathies to you Cynthia and to your family. May God give you the strength and courage during this difficult time.

  15. Sorry for the loss of your loved one. My deepest sympathy and condolences goes out to you and your family. The Bible calls God the source of life Acts 17:24,25 so have faith that God is certainly capable of restoring life to someone who has died so be assured that you will see your loved one again. God sees death as the enemy 1 Corinthians 15:26 and I pray he gives you comfort in your time of need. There have been eight instances in the Bible of humans young, old, male, and female who God brought back to life on earth John 11:39-44 and he yearns to bring back your loved one who are in his memory Job 14:14,15. I pray that God of comfort gives you strength and the ability to endure during this time and that you rely on him when you feel weak. In Jesus name I pray Amen
