Grandpa Edwardo, we never had the chance to know you. My dad, Chuck, your son was only a year and 3 months d when you were taken away from us. We only know about you through stories from those that knew you. You were a great person. A very caring person to do what you did. Your sacrifice will be remembered and told to all our children and grandchildren so they will know the hero you were and the ultimate sacrifice you gave. Our only regret is that we never had the chance to know you. Gone but not forgotten.
