My thoughts and prayers go out to the family on the lost of
their father. I went to Wood Hi School and was in the class
with Martha Salazar, my name is Janet Balfanz White. Just
wanted to let the family know my prayers are with all of you.

I will always remember my Dad giving me ‘consejos’ about life. He would always say, “Mija, I’ve been through the years, I have the experience and I want you to listen to me. When you have your own children, you will understand”.
And everything my Dad told me was so true! At the time I didn’t appreciate those talks, but looking back now, I will always treasure those memories. I’m so happy that he taught me a good work ethic and to always help those in need. Thank You Daddy, I will surely miss you but knowing that your resting in peace brings me much comfort. Until I see you again, your baby daughter, Carolina❤️

My deepest sympathy to the Salazar family. Our families have known each other for many years including our days at Telferner Grocery, Wood Hi school and Stroman High School. My last memory was seeing Mr. and Mrs. Salazar at the Telferner Post Office. May God grant him eternal rest.
