    Pedro "Tata" del Juderias
    Hi Stampers!
    I am back after a very busy past month. My apologies for not posting, but our family loss a very special person. Roger and his 6 siblings loss both of his parents at a very young age. "Tata", whom was a good friend to the family stepped in and filled in the the gap with no hesitation. "Ta" never married and took care of the Acdal Family. "Ta" became family. "Ta
    lived a very long life and we were fortunate to have him as part of our family. In the end, as the family gathered around "Ta", we sang praise and worship and he peacefully went home to our Lord on August 28, 2012. Thank You "Ta" for all that you have done for our family! You are truly loved and will be missed by all!
