My most sincere condolences to MACHUCA/PONCE families.
My most sincere, fondest memories of Elida (la Huera) was of our childhood yrs when Machuca, McDonald n Ojeda families all rode the School bus together. We all belonged to the same surrounding ranchos on Mayfield Road where we all grew up together. We continued being friends throughout the yrs. Rest in peace, Huera, and hope to pick up where we left off. You were a sweet friend..I will miss u dearly. Heaven gained another SPECIAL ANGEL. ❤
