Dear Daddy,

For every moment we fought one minute more was added
to the love I had for you. I will always be your "Meeso"
and you will always be my special Daddy. I mourn for the
time we will not spend in the future but I rejoice for the
pain and suffering you will no longer endure. I loved you
in life and I will love you even more in death. Rest in peace
and God bless you.

Your loving daughter,
Janelle "Meeso" Adams

To Uncle Elo a global individual

SUnknown to us is the exact number of individuals who
today owe some portion of their success to your influence
and guidance. I am convinced that many remember and join
me in saying "thanks." Your quiet but immeasurable con-
S tributions to mankind may not be known to all, but those
who know are eternally grateful.

Your loving niece,
.Joycelyn "Moose" B. Encarnacion
