I first met Juan when Weda n Juan moved to Houston after they got married. Weda was my beautiful cousin that reminded me of Marlow Thomas in That Girl. They were so in love. He was one of the kindest person anyone could meet. After they moved from Houston, we occasionally kept in touch as cousins do over the phone or whenever we saw each other. We shared various precious moments with Juan. He had such a beautiful personality, always joking and making you feel at home. I remember when we all went to Lake Charles and my husband joked with Juan as being his lucky charm. LOL. And the time, we all went to Kemah, we had such a great time with Juan. Juan will always be remembered because of the beautiful heart he had. He left behind a beautiful legacy that we will cherish and remember him. Will always keep you in our hearts and in our thoughts, Juan. Till we all see each other again. Love, your cousin Libby and Steve Woodward

Juanito, mi amigo, you are not dead and gone because our memories growing up will be with us forever. We gave it a good run and even though Viet Nam left us wounded and hurt, we still kept up the fight and raised beautiful families, and that will be our legacy. Hasta luego mi amigo, see you on the other side. Bito
