    I along with a lot of our cousins, would agree that Tio was a generous man and would always give us dollars, every time we visited his mechanic shop. He cussed like a sailor but it was always with love. Thank you for teaching me so many Spanish cuss words and always being so kind. You will be missed dearly.
