JN LOVING MEMORY
Of Our Brother & Son
(To be read hb'Juanita Rivera)

Here lies a man, not fortunate enough to have
been born with a silver spoon in his mouth. Never
did he did write a great book nor did he ever hold an
office. He never did any of the things that ac-
_ company greatness nor did he have any credeiitials
but himself. -

At times he was very domineering, but always
determined to strive for his ultimate goal.

'Educators may say he was ignorant, and
correct they would be, because the intelligence
that our brother was granted came solely from his
common sense and experiences in life. Although
he was hot omnisceht, he was very open hearted.
He didn't have much to give, but what he gave was
given with all the spirit and love he possessed.

-In remembrance of our brother, Diego, his
everchanging ambitions will be everlasting in our
.hearts. The artist, the upholsterer, the carpenter,
the mechanic, all are portraits of our brother, yet
each one holds a memory as vivid as the stars. Rest
in Peace, dear brother.
