The Alonzo family in Texas and throughout the United States and as a former state representative I can say the state of Texas bids farewell to a great Chicano that recorded through literature our existence. Literature is life and passion. I still remember my mom using the egg and broom to sweep away the bad so we would have hood health. And now with covid 19...we remember. May Anaya rest in peace and we send condolences. Their loos I'd our loss...but we remember and not forget.
