  3. My Pepe had a kindhearted, uniquely humorous spirit that made everyone chuckle. He never smiled so big as when he was surrounded by his little grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was loved and cared for right til the end by his family. Pepe, we will all miss you and remember you fondly. Now it’s time to rest in peace with Meme. Love you.
