May you RIP my Dear Friend. You were my Mentor for so long and to read of your passing truly breaks my heart. You and your family were so kind to me when you graduated from NMSU, you all put me up in your parents home. Breaks my heart that you are not here today but what comforts me is to know that you are with my Parents. You were my Mentor, my friend and whenever I reached out to you, you were there. May You find comfort today and always. I thank you today and always for being a huge part of my life.
