I had the pleasure of working side by side with Lupe at the Methodist Church on many occasions at events at the church. He was always willing to to do anything to help make our job easier. UMW owes him a debt of thanks for always helping us. He was truly a great help. He will be missed by so many.
Prayers of comfort for the whole family.

To the family of Mr. Lupe,
I had the pleasure of running into Lupe several times a week during Wednesday youth and church. He always greeted me with a smile, a kind word and a blessing before leaving. He was a sweet gentleman and I know he'll be missed.

Prayers for peace and comfort at this time,
Love, Wendy & Kiley Allen
