My heartfelt condolences on the passing of your beloved Father. I met your Father back in the 70's, I took my Camaro for repairs. He was recommended by Mr Pete. Pruneda. I believe Mr Pruneda and Mr. Perez were either related or friends, do not remember. Blessings to the Family and may he REST IN PEACE???.

Dear, Cynthia and Felix,. I want to express my most sincere condolences on the passing of your father. These moments are certainly very hard on the family, but the good thing is that your father is now in a better place with your Mom. May God keep you and your family strong and give you inner peace.

My condolence to the entire Perez family over the loss of a great caring Dad and loving husband, especially Tio Lupe's daughters/my cousins, Cynthia and Elsa. I have cherished childhood memories of visiting their home in Laredo. Tio Lupe and his family were always so welcoming and provided a warm and loving environment. Tio Lupe also greatly cared for us during our "across the border" excursions. May Tio Lupe rest in peace and be reunited in heaven with my Tia Josefina. Much Love, Tony Segovia
