Carrrrloos,

I along with countless other people read your column faithfully and finally one day I met you at the famous "Cadillac Bar" in downtown San Antonio where I waited tables. We became very good friends. You and Jesse Medina, the owner/my boss, would always get a "kick" of how I would tend tables and dance with my customers either on the dance floor or around their table. You nicknamed me "El Mesero Bailarin" and would ask me, "Toño, de donde sacas tanta energia?" (from where do you get all that energy?). I would simply answer, FROM INSIDE, the same place you get your Passion to speak for us, the little people.

We had many good laughs at the Cadillac. Thank you for the friendship and the consejos. Muchas Gracias AMIGO .......

Descansa en Paz Carrrloos .....

An incredible man, a great Democrat, a dedicated activist. A man who truly lived and acted on his beliefs. Goodbye/Adios to a great man.

Mr. Guerra's column was the first thing I looked at in the Express-News. When he left the paper, I had fewer reasons to read it. Carlos Guerra was one of my heros because he said what he thought and he got things done.

God bless his spirit and his family. He was such an inspiration - he never forgot where he came from - and lived his politics with such conviction and pride. I'll always appreciate how he helped me when I brought an art exhibit to San Antonio for my doctoral work at Columbia. I am also from Robstown and he made it clear how he values community - and wished for every Chicana/Chicano/Mexican/Mexican-American to realize his/her own dreams and goals. The best we can do to honor his memory is to continue that work...Rest in Peace Carlos Guerra

My prayers are with his family. I know he is in a better place now. I didnt know him personally but i did work at the Express News for a brief period of time and saw him come in every day and he seemed like a wonderful and careing person. Rest in Peace Me Guerra

Our deepest condolences to the family of a great Mexicano…. “Carlos Guerra”.

Carlos’s journeys were many to which he cross paths in various cultures of life, placing him with his passion and warrior strife for his unidos.

“Pursue Education”, is the strife we personally shared with Carlos in our voices, our energy and love of our raza in joining forces to set out to accomplish, the dreams of our youths...

Both my husband and I met Carlos in the 80’s when Tejano Music gave birth and together we utilized the growth of our local musicians and area of opportunities in fundraisers for the education of our young Raza.

Thank you for your perseverance, forceful leadership to our future Raza Successors…

Your gift to us is your legacy……”VIDA DULCE”

Carlos said it better:

Cuando pesco, asombra cómo el pez tiene la libertad de nadar y vivir cualquiera donde en el mundo, como debemos también
Translation:
When I am fishing, it is amazing how the fish have the freedom to swim and live any where in the world, as we should too.
