Condolence: Your father, grandfather, and husband Juan was such a wonderful man, always so welcoming to our family, and always so positive in his outlook. With so much warmth, he was so proud of all of you, and so involved in each of your lives. I so enjoyed talking with Juan - we would talk about everyone in our family - Lucy and Lainey especially - and everyone in your family. And he really got it about family. He talked about how important "family" is, and he meant and practiced what he said. I will always remember and always miss Juan. I feel so fortunate that I had those many occasions to share with him. Silvija, Lucy, and Lainey also always enjoyed being with Juan, and we all send our condolences. We all share in your sadness, and please know that we are thinking about you. Most of all, we thank you for including us in so many fun times that we had with your family that also allowed us to know your wonderful father and grandfather and husband Juan Rivera.

Condolence: Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May God give you courage, strength, hope, and healing.

John was one of the best story tellers, best huggers, and funniest jokesters we ever met! John always had a great story to tell about his grandkids or his girls. The love and tenderness we saw between John and Sonia was so beautiful. If ever two people were one, and soulmates, it was John and Sonia.

Rest in peace, Dearest John. You are in God's care now. Until we meet again, we will miss you.
