Philip and I send our love and prayers to the Baca family. It was indeed a shock to hear about "The General." I remember he sat in the left front pew everyday at the 7 am mass. He was so friendly and always welcomed everyone with a smile and a firm handshake. He and Deacon Juan greeted each other and whispered out loud! They were both so funny. Besos and blessings to all his family.
