REYES RAMON PADILLA June 29, 1924 - March 4, 2014 On his 90th birthday, as our family remembers our beloved husband, father, grandfather and brother Reyes, we honor a man who lived fully and loved deeply. We wish to extend our deep gratitude to all who offered prayers, love and comfort during our time of loss, and to all who continue to do so today. Your outpouring of heartfelt support and friendship duly honors Reyes's generous spirit. Many people provided loving care and comfort to Reyes, and extended many kindnesses to all of our family, during the last few years of his life. We offer special thanks to Dr. Boudinot Atterbury of Southwest Care Center Family Medicine, Dr. Robert Feldman, Dr. Charles McCanna, Dr. Pat Pacheco and his wonderful staff, physical therapist Gretchen Johnson, and the staff of Christus St. Vincent. We also thank Berardinelli Family Funeral Services, especially Rick Berardinelli, Gerald Rodriguez and Suzi Harman, for their compassionate assistance with all funeral arrangements. The Rev. Tien-Tri Nguyen and Dolores Romero of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church provided kind support in coordinating the funeral mass, while La Cofradia de la Conquistadora opened the beautiful Rosario Chapel to us for a rosary. Philip Trujillo provided soulful musical accompaniment at the rosary and mass. He was joined by AnnaMaria Padilla Cardinalli, who generously contributed her lovely voice and guitar talents at mass. We are deeply indebted to the Rev. Juan Mendez and the Rev. George Salazar for their longtime friendship, and especially, for traveling from afar to officiate the funeral mass and interment services, respectively. Staff of the Santa Fe National Cemetery, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Honor Guard, and active members of U.S. Marine Corps all joined to provide a respectful and honorable military tribute to Reyes's service as a Marine Corps veteran of World War II. Finally, thanks to the staff at the Inn at Loretto for their lovely accommodations and service during a memorable reception. Zenaida Padilla and Family
