Not sure what to say?

I'm sorry for your loss Mrs G. Mr G. was very special. I learned not to give up. He taught me not to let situations define or defeat me. He talked to me 1 on 1 especially after learning of my mom's death he took it upon himself to be my strong shoulder. He always told me to take my Napoleon Syndrome and use it to succeed at everything I did. Giving up was something he never talked about. He

God bless you and your family Coach. You taught me that there was always more of myself to give. When I thought I could do no more, you showed my how to give 110%. You taught me that there was always a way to keep going. I learned not to quit. Thank you Coach for caring. Thanks to your family for sharing you. God bless you.

All of my love and prayers are with you all. Sal was such a wonderful and special person to me and all of our family. Love you all so very much.

Heartfelt sympathy to Sal's family & friends. His was a life well lived.

Betty, I am so sorry I could not attend Sal's services. You and the girls have been in my prayers. I know these are hard times, but you have many wonderful memories of him. I have always looked up to Sal as a role model and oldest cousin. He was always about family. He will be missed and his legacy will never be forgotten. Love to you and all the family.

I am sorry I am unable to attend the services for Sal, but you and family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dearest Betty and Family. I will forever be indebted to Coach Gonzales for believing in me and allowing me the chance to play football and baseball under his leadership. He made winners of us all at Los Lunas during the early 1970's and he believed in giving students and players a second chance. But most of all, he stressed to us to be winners in life more than in sports. I'll never forget when we won the state baseball championship in 1970 and again in 1972, he said "you will cherish...

Dear Betty and Family,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. We have so many wonderful memories of Sal over the last 50 or so years. He was a dear friend who was highly respected by his Aggie teammates, by the students he coached, and by the communities he touched. He will be missed.
Love, Clem and Elcid Mancini
