We recently found out about Mr. Sanchez's passing. We are sorry for your recent loss, I and my wife, Ana, had known Mr. Sanchez, since I worked downtown at Siros Sporting Goods in the 80's as a college student. I visited him through the years, and reminisced about Laredo's history. He would always greet you with a smile, and a handshake. I considered him an icon in downtown and Laredo's business history. We will miss him, but hopefully we can find solace in that he is in a better place. Our heartfelt sentiments, thoughts, and prayers are with you and your entire family.

Orville Ramsey posted on 12/24/20

I was greatly saddened when I got the news of Arturo's death. Please be assured that the family is in my prayers as you struggle with the grief of this tragic loss. Arturo was a dear friend for over 30 years. I shall never forget the huge smile and his greeting, "Orville Ramsey" every time I visited his shop. I also cherish the time I spent with him in the shop and across the table sharing numerous meals with him. He had a tremendous love for his family and for his abundance of friends in Laredo and Nuevo Laredo. Dora, Chris, Michael, Jessica I wish God's arms of blessings with strength and comfort wrap around you to bring you through these trying days.

Uncle Arturo was one of the best persons I ever knew. He taught me how to work hard and bring joy to others. He always made time to talk every couple of weeks. I am rejoicing in knowing he was welcomed by our Lord to the glory of heaven. My heart is heavy with sorrow for my Tia and primos. Love you all.
