Mr. Lazaro picked up his grandchildren from school almost daily. I had the privilege to talk to him but mostly listen to his stories. He was proud of all his children and their accomplishments. He shared their success stories on several occasions. Additionally, Mr. Lazaro shared stories of the older families in La Feria and specifically how he knew my grandfather. The most memorable story was that of the Bracero program. He had a lot of history, culture and family love to share with many. May he Rest In Peace.

So many great memories during my childhood. He was a very hard working individual. I recall him always telling me how he wanted to adopt me when my mother Arabela passed away. And as much time I would spent at their residence I believe there was a time I would call him dad. R.I.P Alfredo ❤
My condolences to the Lazaro family.🙏
