Thanks to my great-aunt and uncle I have warm memories of lazy afternoons spent in the fun-filled home of "Nacho y La Guera" events won't be the same without her. Nando and Tessie's daughter, Julie.

Although, I did not know Mrs. Banuelos, personally. On many occasions, we sat close to one another at Austin games and she never failed to praise her grandson, Andy. She truly was so proud of him! She was always graceful and such a beautiful lady. May your family continue to feel the peace of the Lord.

"There will be a day with no more tears no more pain, and no more fears, there will be a day when the burdens of this place will be no more, we'll see Jesus face to face", that's where Andrea is now. I pray God gives you peace, comfort and strength to carry on and know that one day we will see her again in paradise!
