My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Mendez, Albert, and my dear friends, Veronica and Monica, on the loss of their beloved husband and father. Mr. Mendez was a proud father and grandfather who delighted in his extended family. Growing up with the twins, I remember him rooting for his favorite sports teams and dancing with Mrs. Mendez. When Veronica was accepted to UT he wasted no time in putting the “I’m a Longhorn Dad” sticker on his car. He always welcomed us into their home and was interested in what we were doing as teenagers, and later in life as adults. He will be missed.
