Our condolances to the entire Santana family. Looking at your photo gallery brings back so many memories of growing up at Martin ranch. It seemed like we had our own little city no one knew about. Kids always gathering at our house on a Saturday morning, whether it was marbles, spinning tops, especially baseball. As we grew friends started moving, homes torn down but memories will always remain in the rich soil of El Rancho Blanco. Delores may you rest in peace and God be with you and your family. Condolances made by me, Lucio Mata, Jr, my wife Toni, my mom Elvira, Virginia, Juanita, Maria, Yolanda, Oscar, Rudy, Olga, Terry Mata.
