  1. In Loving Memory of our great friend and brother. We cherish our memories of you, your great smile, your jokes and your sincere personality. We will keep you in our hearts. We love you and miss you very much

  2. Our heart is filled with sadness at your loss of Manuel Sena Manny. We can not imagine the pain you feel now but we wanted to let you know that our loving thoughts are with you.

    We can only say how much we will miss ManuelManny. ManuelManny was a jewel among us, with a big heart full of kindness, caring, loving, and fun.

    Even though the time we spent with Manuelmannywas all too infrequent, when he was around our bonds were reinforced by the simplest of hugs, or laughters. He made us welcome no matter what was transpiring in his life, no matter how busy he was.

    God gave us a true brother and friend that remains with us through the rest of our lives, so close yet not with us in body any longer.

    We know you would call if there is anything at all we can do, but we just wanted to let you know that we are here for you regardless of day or night 949481-9888.

    You and ManuelManny are in our thoughts and prayers,

    The Oseguera Family Checo,Sukey, Chuy, Jaz

  3. Mijo,

    Today marks 6 weeks since your death. Every day is a struggle, but they get more difficult for your Pop’s and me. It is through the grace of God and prayers, that we make it through each day.

    You are remembered as the one who always wrapped his arm around me where ever we were and who always looked out for me. Our memories will never die, nor does my love for you.

    Please hug me and kiss my cheek like you did everyday. That was YOUR blessing for me.

    There is a big whole in my heart & in my life. You were a gift from God for 32 years, and you will never be forgotten. After all, you are…”Mama’s First Born”

    I draw comfort knowing that you are in Heaven now, and can not be hurt any more…by anyone.

    Love & Blessings Forever,
