At the time Mr. Rodriguez passed, Huong and I were in Greeley. We were out of town since December and finally, on catching up on my newspaper reading, came to know of your dad's passing. He has a very special place in our hearts and we are very sad yet happy to know he is with the Lord. I tried to get a hold of Patty but I don't have her telephone #, as all of my #'s were deleted from my telephone accidentally. I do have a cell #: 719 - 744-9360. Again, all of the Marquez family express our deepest condolences to all of you. With much Love In The Lord: Joe/Huong Marquez and Family.

We were so sad to hear of Uncle Butch’s passing. Praying that you all are comforted by God’s peace and strength during this difficult time.
