My condolences to Rolando, Barbara and Grandson Lewis. The few times that I had conversations with him he remembered my parents and their friendship with the Sepulvedas who were my godparents.

My condolences to you and your family and from my mother Evangelina Esther Gutierrez-Gonzalez and my sisters Aurelia Guadalupe Lemoine, Adelfa Esther Gonzalez as well as Myself Aida Juanita Gonzalez. My mother Lina as she is know among the Gutierrez family is the first born daughter of Esther Romo -your father Isabel Romo’s sister and the sole surviving member of a beautiful family clan that goes far back as the 1500’s when the first Romo landed in Mexico City to survey lands for the Holy See. We are forever grateful for how many people he knew. I as a cantor and parishioner of Immaculate Heart of Mary in the service of The Archdiocese Of Galveston-Houston I was happy to have know him and the family clan of Romo well. I often visited the graves of the family clan and prayed often on the Cantor’s Stand for so many years. I am happy that he has gone home to see my Great Grandma Petra and all my people who I terribly miss so much.
