Saying you will be missed is an understatement, you are the biggest void I will never be able to fill. You were my best friend, an amazing father and role model, you gave me strength when I didn’t have it, the will power to want to succeed and do more. You were everything. I love you dad. I know your all around me because I feel it, in everything I see and touch. Every question I have I know you will lead me in the right direction. Forever giving me your guidance.

My condolences to the whole Rocha family. May our Lord grant you Strength and Comfort during this difficult time. Mr Rocha did some electrical work for me. The last time he brought his son (Nixon student). He was so proud of him. He was a very nice man.

Rest in peace Henry. I will never forget all the good times we had back in the 70's. We went to Ryan, Lamar and Nixon. We were both in band while attending Ryan. The years passed. We grew up. But we always ran into each other at the Whataburger on Guadalupe. When I had my 68 Malibu we would cruise the streets of Laredo listening to Boston, Legs Diamond, Steve Miller, Van Halen, Ted Nugent, ZZ Top, Heart and other such Rock & Roll bands. We had so much fun. We were in our late teens. Life was cruising, drinking some beer, listening to music, laughing without a care in the world. You will me be missed my friend. Rest in peace. Carlos Blanco Jr.

My condolences to his family. He would always greet us in the halls at the Martinez Fine Arts Center when we'd report need for help. Always sweet and explained reasons for delays if there was any. He was always appreciated by our department.
