Almost 50 years ago, back in the seventies, at Memorial High school, Joe and Grace were dating. They were always together, and looking for each other when one was not present They loved each other.
These days, I am remembering my friends, Joe and Grace have gone before us. But somehow, its right, because they always needed to be together. The Lord gave us more years with Grace, and for that we are grateful. Above it all, we were impacted by them and the wonderful family they left behind. They continue the love that was started 50 years ago, and continues to be shared today with us.
Until we meet again, Joe and Grace, until we meet again. Fred & Debbie Rangel

My deepest and sincerest condolences to Ms. Carranza's Family on her passing. Ms. Carranza never missed an opportunity to help others along with her late husband, Joe. With her commitment to helping her community was her love for her family. When I was principal at Memorial High School, her visits and lovely smile would always brighten my day. I know that she will truly be missed by me and all who had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Carranza. There is comfort knowing that now she is reunited with her husband, Joe, in God's kingdom. May she Rest in Peace. I offer my prayers of comfort during this very difficult time for the Family.
