Rest peacefully, I look at my dad, my 1st born son and myself and see us in you. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to meet you, talk to you, learn about you, fish with you… any of the things a grandson would love to do with their grandpa. I’ve dreamed about you for many years what you were like, what you look like, do we have things in common, I wanted to know any and everything about you. Rest easy Abuelo Sal

To a wonderful Father in law who I was Honored to know and be a part of the Sayas family. Your Son John followed in your foot steps and learned so many things from you, his skills for building stuff, car repairs, family values and so much more. You will be missed by so many but never forgotten. Jacob some called you ” The Legend” and I believe this to be true. So many great memories and stories we will all hold in our hearts and pass to our Families next generations.
