Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved. There are never any right words to express how deeply sad I am for the pain your family is enduring at this difficult time.

As Chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs and Military Installations, I am sincerely thankful for his valiant service in defense of our rights and freedom.

His commitment to family, friends, our community, and to serving our great nation leaves a wonderful legacy. May the love and the wonderful memories you shared with him help you when you need it most. He will never be forgotten, and your family will be remembered in my prayers.

Sweet Papa...you touched so many lives with your caring and loving nature. When my daughters and I moved to Texas, Susie was one of the first friends I made, and from that friendship came our new family that we have been so blessed to be a part of for 14 years. You always had a smile, hug and wisdom to share, and you will forever be in our hearts. My dear friend, Susie, you were daddy's little girl and I admire your devotion to Papa and Granny and love you with all of my heart. Granny.....you were blessed to have such an amazing husband and father to your children. My heart goes out to the entire family and you are all in our prayers. I will cherish every moment spent with you, Papa. You enriched my life.

God's Blessings to you all,

Danielle Marquez, Brett, Kamille, Briget, Noah & Gabriella

Having worked with Susie Golla for many years whenever I would travel to San Antonio for business I always would go see Mom and Dad. I felt as if I had known them all my life and they were my own family. 67 years of marriage is amazing and what a woderful and kind man Victor was. I will miss him. Thoughts and prayers with the whole Golla family.
