Not sure what to say?

To the Garza family my deepest condolences. This especially goes out the Velinda and Martin Gauna family. Catching up with my reading and saw your dad's notice. I wish I could have been there personally. Your dad and the "Kelly Mariachi's" also participated at the annual CFC campaigns as well. Great memories. I regret I did not see young Martin and Bianca. My prayers go out for your dad because in the end that is the best thing we can offer him. Still working, I'm on the global.

Our condolences and prayers are with the family in this time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort. May he Rest in Peace. Mr and Mrs Rudy Canedo and Family

I am so sorry for your loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" sustain you during this difficult time. (Isaiah 61:1,2). My prayers are with your family.

Velinda & Martin,

I had the pleasure of meeting your dad at KAFB, social events and let's not forget the movies. Later, I had the pleasure of seeing you and your dad at the medical appointments at the VA. Many blessings to you and your family and knowing that both your parents are looking down from heaven acknowledging how proud they are of their family and what a fantastic job they have accomplished. God bless you always and I will keep you in my prayers! Love always,...

Garza family, Melissa and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to all of your family. We met your dad and mom when we were stationed in Sevilla Spain. We were young newly weds and your parents always gave us advice and guidance as we were starting our new life. Now they are together in heaven and looking down and watching over all of us. God bless all your family

Emily, my fondest memory of your precious handsome dad will always be when he sang at my wedding. Then he went on to sing for many of my family events. What a beautiful voice God gave him, not to mention all of the other family values and virtues your dad lived by. I can remember as young adults, while I was hanging out at your house on Waverly, I would see the love in the eyes of both your parents, they showed how much they loved one another and respected one another with all their being,...

Condolences to you all.

We are praying for Uncle Emilio, Aunt Velia and all the family. Emilio Garza, a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a great musician, Mariachi and movie actor. Thank you Lord for his life on earth. We know he is with his beloved wife, Velia and son, Roland. We will miss him and his beautiful voice, and we are happy to know that he is at peace with our Lord. He will always be in our hearts. RIP Uncle Emilio.

Velinda Gauna and family, and Garza family my deepest condolences in the passing of your dad. He was a great man who loved his family dearly. Your father's love for music will forever live in everyone's heart. No matter wherever he is, he'll always be watching over you all. I will keep you close in my thoughts and prayers in the coming weeks as you are going through your process of grieving. RIP Mr. Garza
