Funeral expenses for Ramon Franco

My Dad, Ramon will forever live in our hearts. There are no words to describe how we are going to move forward and deal with the grief of loosing you. No one can ever prepare you for such a life altering loss.  You were the strength of the family always leading the way and guiding your children. You loved celebrating every single holiday and making your wife, children, grandchildren feel very special. You were always filled with so much joy and shared it with everyone that was around you.  You made everyone feel welcomed and cared for always opening your home to everyone.  You have taught every one of your children to always finish what you start, to always see good in everything even in the difficult times, to never judge anyone, to always be kind to people because you never know their situation, to be giving and thoughtful and help others.  Because of those lessons we are all better people.  As adults you have taught us to always be accountable for our actions, be forgiving and not to hold grudges.  You always enjoyed family trips and adventures.  From a simple trip to the lake to fish and teaching your grandsons how to put a hook on a fishing line, something they will always remember. Dad always loved to grill chicken, and bbq ribs (even though he burned them).  He loved cooking, was another way he showed us love. My Dad was taken so soon on December 11,2020. I would like to believe that the Virgen de Guadalupe has welcomed him home. I find comfort that he was reunited with his parents and best friend.
You have left us with lots of great memories, and life lessons. Keep looking down on us and guiding us. You will never be forgotten.

We started this account in an effort to raise funds for the funeral expense, since this was an unexpected sudden loss.   We are hoping to raise the money within the next couple of weeks to begin the funeral arrangements.
