If you knew Paco you knew he lived his life for his children. He was a devoted father, son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. Paco enjoyed fishing with his Uncle Fidel, watching the Cowboys play and traveling with his children.

                                         Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure.

                                        You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.

                                             A heart of gold stopped beating

                                                   Two willing hands at rest

                                                      God broke our hearts

                                                         To prove to us

                                                   He only takes the best.
