Manuel Lara Alonzo In Memoriam
July 27, 1928 - May 2, 2005

Our beloved father left us to join our Lord 10 years ago. We would like to reflect on his memory as expressed in this poem written by our own family poet, Sandra Alonzo Magee.

After 10 years and many tears -
I found a letter from you
It was the last I was to receive.
Your words of Love and Faith
are a comfort as I still grieve.

You wrote how the good Lord
Has blessed your life.
You were so thankful for the
blessing of a wonderful wife.

I've seen for myself why you
spoke of her with such pride.
When you got sick she cared for
you and never left your side.

Even today when I go home
I travel on a plane up in the air.
When I get to the house
I still expect you standing there.

These past 10 years, in all
that's happened and things we've done.
We all feel as we always have

Mom has so valiantly continued your legacy. Her strength and faith leads our family as well as your memory and teachings. We love you with all of our hearts and still miss you so.
Love, Mom (Maria Alonzo), Sal, Gilbert, Sarah, Sandra, and Richard and every family member.
