    Dear Tinoco Family:
    I was saddened to hear of the passing of Adolfo. Although I haven’t seen or spoken to him for a very long time I remember him fondly. We were classmates at St. Gabriel’s school in Chicago.
    May you find Peace during this most difficult time.
    I am very sorry for your loss.

    Uncle I hope you are resting in piece. Lately I’ve gone with Robert on rides in your treasured car and I can’t help but to think of you and how happy you were then. Things are not the same without you and grandma, our family is not complete. I mention you to my kids and they still remember you. I’m glad you got to meet them. Where ever you are pray for all of us.

  • Sylvia says:

    My lil brother,
    If tears could build a stairway & memory lane, I would walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
    You’re the loving brother I’ve adored since we were small. The day you left was the saddest time of all.
    Truth is I’ll never get over losing you. You are part of my heart & soul.
    I miss you every day more and more!
