I wish I could have seen him and said goodbye. I will miss him! My prayers and thoughts are with your family as you go through this time of pain; but joy comes in the morning as we will see him one day in the earth made new! God bless.
In that great getting up morning! I pray I will be there as Bro. Damaso has made his calling and election sure. May Yahweh comfort the family.
Coralie and Family … I first met Damaso when I came to the Poughkeepsie Church back in the 70`s. You both made me and my sons feel welcomed and right at home. When I returned a few years back, it was like no time had passed. He was just as warm, friendly and welcoming. I always saw him as a gentle, dedicated man, working unselfishly for the Lord. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. I will not only miss Damaso, but now that you have moved … I will miss you and your McNulty part of your family in the childrens division of Sabbath School. Please be well and know you have an abundance of thoughts and prayers coming your way from Poughkeepsie.
A true servant of God and man. Noel the children and I will truly miss Damaso`s soft kind voice loving words and warm smile. May God`s blessings continues to be showered upon Coralie and all the other members of your family.

Villalba Family,I`m sorry for your loss of this great man. I have fond memories of listening to him speak and be busy around the church. He will be sorely missed. We will continue to pray for you through this difficult time.
Damaso was such a kind man who I knew since I was a kid and he will be missed by so many. At least we have the hope of seeing him in heaven someday soon where he will once again be young and in perfect health and never again have to feel pain or sickness.
We are so very sorry for the loss of this wonderful man of God. He was a loving and gentle person who perfectly demonstrated what it means to be a Christian and set a Godly example.

It is now mid-September and I just learned of Damaso`s passing. He and I worked together for IBM in Poughkeepsie for a number of years. I have never met a more decent, ethical man. He had a delightful sense of humor and we shared many extremely funny moments together. My most sincere condolences to his family. I will keep him in my thoughts and prayers.
