A monumental loss of a cousin who was always like a brother. We will miss his joy; his singing and his sweet temperament. He came from a family whose love of kin is rarely found. His eyes always lit up when he saw a brother, sister, cousin, or any of the numerous relatives in the clan. His mother, Dionisia Figueroa-Figueroa, was my aunt and cut from the same cloth. God Bless him for he truly deserves it. Love and gratefulness for being his cousin, Milty & Herb

I am so sorry for Tio Manolito's passing. I have beautiful memories from Tio, he loved his family, he lived an honorable life and was a man of faith. Most special to me were his singing and his tenderness. Abuelo Blas and Mama Lola raised the most amazing children, I am so proud to be connected to and be shaped by them and the best role models I could had ever asked for.
May God have him in His Glory.
Rest in Peace Tio Manolito
Love you all,
Marga Marie, Alexander and Della
