To the Familia of Rolando Cuevas

I wanted to offer my condolence to the familia in the loss of Rolando. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

While living in Midland, I remember all the wonderful times my family had with Jose, Emy and rest of the family…Rolando would be there at times. Each time I would return to Midland and visit my mother and/or my brother, my path would cross with Rolando. He was always very kind and greeted me with a big smile. Those wonderful memories will be treasured. I will miss not seeing Rolando smiley face in the neighborhood when I visit.

Rolando was more than just a wonderful person. He was always so kind and considerate to everyone he crossed paths with. And, we know that his passing will not only leave a void in your lives but in the hearts of all those who knew him.

Prayers are with you all.
