Uncle Lalo: Will always hold great memories of him in my heart. He was a respected person, witty... and a protective Uncle. I loved his smile and the sound of his laughter. Condolences to all the family. Sheila (cano) Garcia.

To my little brother, Lalo:
Sometimes when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated. The void and pain within me are much larger than my whole. The world will never be the same without you. You will always be missed and I will never forget you. I love you. Your sister.

Eddie was a very good friend of mine. We played music together for years. We first started playing together in Las Vegas and continued when we returned to Arizona. I talked to him about a month ago and asked him how he was. He said he was fine. I didn't know he was ill and still don't know from what he died. I will miss him greatly, not just for his playing but his friendship. Rest in Peace my dear friend.

My condolences to Edward, Eric, Lynette, Eddie's grandchildren, Bennie, Ernest, Rey, and Tillie. I remember how proud my ninos, Tio Anastacio and Tia Mary were of their musical sons. Eddie was blessed with the gift of music and he shined brightly as he played his guitar.
