I was sadden to hear of Hondo’s passing. I’ll always remember his kindness and love of family and, of course, his wonderful cooking. Sorry I couldn’t be there to share in your sorrow. My condolences to the family. I was blessed to have known him.

We lost a patriarch of the family to Covid.
He was an extremely faith filled man, a war veteran,a father figure and one of the most loving people you would have ever met.

He was one of the "Uncles" he will be missed terribly. I will miss our Sunday lunches, he loved to cook. He hosted many dinners, Thanksgiving, Christmas,New Year dinner plus those bunuelos! July 4th hot dogs and pasta everything was always delicious. Plus my advantage he always made enough for me to have my to go boxes ready , enough for his brother Marcos. Baked his famous jello bunt cakes, lemon cookies if he ever attended any family event he always brought a dish of baked goods or his cheese dip. Remember? his 3 minute never fail icing?

I will miss our political discussion, his love for "Longhorn" football. His knowledge of "older movies" was unbelievable, especially musicals, could break out in song in an instant.
His like and dislikes of current events..he was not filtered :)
I can go on and on, he was one of a kind.
Words cannot describe my heartbreak, for those who don't know me "Dolly" he was much more than an Uncle and I was much more than a niece to him..

I pray that no family has to go through this isolating grief that we had to endure. Please wear a mask, etc...

Michael and I will always have you in our hearts. We promise to take care of Nene.
RIP
