To all the family of Jesus Angel we express our deepest condolences. As kids growing up in Midland our parents were good friends. Many experiences and times were shared at each others houses. Then life happens; time passes, kids grow up and scatter, parents pass away. But the ties of childhood bond us through the years. Now I have the priviledge of knowing Yvonne & Oscar, and their kids, Nathan and Mia.
Annabelle, I know our Lord is saying to Jesus Angel, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord."

On behalf of my parents, Martin & Victoria Diaz, my brothers & sisters & me, "Los acompañamos en su pesar."

To the entire family of Jesus Angel we express our deepest condolences. As children growing up in Midland my parents and Jesus Angel's parents were good friends. I have many fond memories of our families getting together. As life happens; time goes by, kids grow up and scatter, parents pass away but we still remember our early experiences and ties that bond. I now have had the priviledge of knowing Yvonne, her kids, Nathan & Mia, and her husband, Oscar. I say, it is such a small world! Annabelle, I know this: Our Lord is saying to him, "Well done, good and faithful servant, you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord."

On behalf our my parents, Martin & Victoria Diaz and my brothers and sisters and me, los acompañamos en su pesar.
