Mrs. Garza, daughters, sons-in-laws, and all Garza family members,
As you well know, I enjoyed playing for Coach. My teammates and I always gave it our best for Coach, our school, our town and our county. He taught us many lessons on the field and I took some of those lessons with me when I worked in federal law enforcement for over thirty years. Gracias Coach for giving me a chance to prove myself to you and to my teammates. You and your family will always remain close to my heart. We pray that our Lord and Savior Lord Jesus hold a special place for you in heaven!

Respectfully,

David O. Ramirez
