My tribute to my cousin Fernie would be a very long one, so I’ll start by saying Happy Heavenly Birthday cousin, I KNOW you are keeping Mom, Dad, my Tia Tencha , Tio Elias and Jr on the edge of their seats laughing because you had that about you, not to mention the gift of gabbing! A lot to catch up on! What a joy 🙌 I will share that this family has always been very very special to me for they took me in while I went to college in El Paso and my love and respect for each one of them is something that only they can understand. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and came to Arizona for treatment we reconnected and it’s one of those blessings that you just pick up where you left of and feel right at home. Fernie always made a point to come see me and always brought yummy food! Reminiscing about so many things and always laughing! Always a smile and a blessing to my day as I traveled my cancer journey! Exactly what the doctor ordered! All while he walked his own journey 🙏 I know God blessed me in this lifetime with Fernie and I cherished every single moment we had together and I know I will see him again and once again sit and laugh as only he can do with that unique voice of his! I won’t say goodbye cousin, just until me meet again 🙌 Love you forever in my heart ❤️ A lone red cardinal visited me today. For the past couple of weeks I’ve had several, but today it was just 1! It’s his birthday, so he’s claiming his day! Love you Cousin 🙏❤️😇

It had been years since we last saw each other. In recent years we finally reconnected and talked on the phone for a while. We would randomly text each especially during football season. Growing up I have fond memories of playing uno with all of the cousins in that awesome basement room on Douglas St. in El Paso. Rest in peace Fernando. I hope those closest to him find the support and strength they need to get through such difficult times. My deepest sympathies.

Fernando we love you and going to miss you. You are a my brother, brother in law to Genaro and uncle to my Christopher. When Christopher was born you were the first one there. And when I was recovering you were there for me to keep me company. It is very difficult for us here with out you. You made us laugh you made me mad you would laugh and knew how to push my buttons that’s what brothers do. I know you are with our family up in heaven watching over all of us. And telling them your stories and driving your 379 Pete. My brother Fernando was a caring person who would help anyone in need. Would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Helped many and was loved by many. I know he loved us all and when it is our time he and our family will be there to welcome us home. Prayers to everyone who is going through a loss of a loved one.
