May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow. Always a total gentleman. Met him in the hall ways of the Bexar County Courthouse 20 years ago. Rest in peace.

Familia Aranda. Sabemos lo que se siente cuando un ser querido se duerme en la muerte; pero ese no es el final de todo. Nuestro padre celestial Jehova nos promete que por medio de su hijo Jesus, muy pronto volveremos a ver de nuevo, a todos esos seres queridos y amigos que se han dormido en la muerte, mediante la resurreccion. Sentimos mucho su pérdida.
