    To Rosie and the rest of her family. My deepest condolences to you on your loss of the family patriarch. My mom and dad are 93 and 92, respectively. So I'm blessed to still have them here. So I really don't know what it's like to lose a parent but I want you to know you are truly in thoughts and prayers. Mr. Cuellar was truly a very kind and loving man. I will miss our many conversations when I saw him at Rosie's . May God's peace and blessings be upon you and your family Mrs. Rosie. Be strong. Love Colton.

    I'm blessed to have been able to see him this past November at Bri's Quince. We enjoyed a few laughs. Mr. Cuellar was an amazing husband to Sr. Julia, an amazing father to his beautiful children and an exceptional grandfather to his beautiful grandchildren and great grandchildren.. As we drove back to GA in November I was able to share memories of I had growing up with the Cuellar's with my daughter and husband. Yoli, Tavin, Rosie, Claudia and Frank, I am deeply saddened by the untimely death of your father and I continue to extend my condolences to the family. It's a great loss to all who loved and knew him, your loving father will remain in all our hearts forever.
