There are no words to tell you the depth of my sorrow and sympathy for you all. Manny was one of a kind. Nobody was ever turned away, left hungry or didn't get a good laugh. At a time in my life when things were tough, you were all there for me and my love for your entire family is unwavering. I love you all and will miss him forever. I am here if you need anything at all.
