My dear cousins. I will always remember the times when we got together when we were young and growing up. Our times in La Grulla, but mostly I have memories of visiting at your home in Edinburg. I will always remember your dad’s loving spirit dearly. Your dad was an amazing role model and I cherish that even more. We were so blessed to be impacted by all of the Hinojosa men. My heart and prayers are with you all. I wish I could be there with you. Blessings- Melissa
