My 12-year-old nephew, Vinnie (on the drums), jamming with jazz legend David Benoit…
A short piece written by Matt’s sister, Katherine, to honor their father, Paul Aguas, on his 21st death anniversary.
My father was a man who had smiles to brighten your days,
Who always made you feel good with his warm words of praise
And what’s more he knew what to do to make your wishes come true.
He was my father.
My father was someone who always had good stories to tell,
But just as importantly he knew how to be a good listener as well.
He was patient & kind and the very best friend you could ever hope to find.
He was no ordinary man,
And I’m proud to tell the world that he was my father.
Rest in peace, Daddy. We miss you so much.

I feel so sad. Today I heard the news that my cousin, Irene, lost her five-year battle with cancer. She was only 53 years old… It was as if it was only yesterday when we played together as kids during those summer vacations… Rest in peace, Irene…
From Irene’s daughter and my niece, Cristine:
About 5:35 am, my mom took her last breath. Marvin (Irene’s partner) and JC (Irene’s son) were with her all night and they called me early. She was surrounded by loved ones til the very last breath.
There are no words to convey how much sadness fills our hearts, or how great of a loss she is to many, but at least she is no longer fighting a losing battle. Cancer has no hold on her anymore and her spirit is now alive, as it should be, and she is on her way to reunite with her father, Fidel, and God.
Please pray for her and her new journey to heaven. Thank you for all your love and support and everything in between. We will let you know about upcoming arrangements, once they are done.
Remember her beautiful smile and know she can smile big again without the pains of cancer.
Thank you, Cristine
See the good. Assume the best. Be ready to forgive.
