Special condolences go out to the Mancha family. I was glad to have met Carlos, Mr. Mancha was a very kind good person. I knew him as one of my neighbors, smart man and always happy and in good spirits. He had a special religious side and a good sense of humor. The few times we spoke I enjoyed speaking with him, we always had mind stimulating discussions. I will miss him, we also shared a bond because we were both vets. Again my condolences to his family, he will be greatly missed. Tony R. Chavez and family.
