Dad,we knew this day would come,it hurts. But with the strength you instilled in us,we will go on! Growing up was fun because we met different people each time you were stationed at a different base. We didn't lack for anything. We were raised with morals, strength, and compassion, thank you Dad. Tell mama and Fred we will always love them. Barbara and Ruben Aguilar.

Fred, you will forever be missed and will always be in our hearts. You were a kind, loving, strong and funny person. Always making us laugh and telling us the stories from your Army days and where you traveled and the people you met. I will miss you waiting for me to come into town to take you and mom fishing. I know you are in heaven catching the big ones that got away. We will always miss you. ❤️❤️✝️
