To the Bazan Family - Please accept my humble condolence in the passing of your beloved one, Antonio Guadalupe Bazan. Lupe, as he was known to all his High School friends at Martin High, was a sincere and honest individual who was always thinking of his fellow men and wanted the absolute best for them. This type of attitude towards life led him to be a very gentle and fine person who was liked by everybody in his social circle. He will always be remembered by his family and friends. May beautiful memories sustain you, and may you be comforted by the thoughts of others who share this sorrow with you. Know that he is in the kingdom of God where his soul will live forever.

My heart goes out to the family members of this wonderful man. I have heard many a good story about his life. I hope the pain of this disparted father, grandfather and beloved figure, will go away soon, only leaving the good times alive. Mari, I hope you will remember him as he was before, all his adventures and the knife cases he made. By the way I never got one. May the Lord be with you and your lovely family. Your friend and co-worker, Dorothy
