Zeferino will be missed. He was funny and kind. I could expect a phone call when it was Sr all season. He lived his Texas Rangers and kept us up with football in and around Marlin. I’m sorry I didn’t get to see you sooner. Love and miss you. Gods plan.

My “Uncle Mickey”was a great man, he always was there throughout my life growing up. He always made sure my dad, Henry took care of me even as an adult his concern for me was always his priority that I was okay. I loved him so much and he will be missed. He always praised God and he instill that in all of us. I want to share a few memories most recent of him and my dad,his brother Henry who passed away last November and his sister Janie.
