In honor of my Uncle Juan Medrano

My uncle passed away on Christmas Day.
Saying good-bye is never easy. My family is much closer then any one can imagine. You see his not my Uncle only but the father to my cousins and well my cousins are like my sisters. I know when people mention  cousins or uncles it's just that. Our family is so much closer and to see not ONE but two Uncles pass away in 2 months... well you can say the bond is so strong that you 
could actually feel it in the air. I have a total of 
22 cousins and at least 14 of them we talk everyday. 
That's only on my Mom's side of the family.
 We encourage each other everyday and
 we never forget to say "I love you". 

I need to have this time for mourning and
 will get back on track soon.

 Sometimes life gets you off track but
 then get back on track. 

Dec. 12, 1947 - Dec. 25, 2010
We will truly miss you.
Juan Medrano

Leaving behind his wife Ana, 5 daugthers, 5 Son in laws, 
11 grandchildren and one great grandson.

His wife...

May the Lord give them strength through this tough time.Please keep them in your prayers.
His daughters...
