Mr. Mungia, You will be truly missed. You were like part of the Galindo, Pena and Vazquez Family because you were our photographer. From birthday parties, Quinces, Sweet 16 to baptisms. Continue snapping photos up in heaven

I remember meeting you during my first year in college due to our mutual interest in photography. We eventually became good friends and took alot of road trips to San Antonio, Austin, the valley etc., usually at the drop of a hat. We'd call each other up and ask each other what our plans were for the weekend and sometimes, if neither of us had anything to do we'd take off for the day. I never had to worry about falling asleep at the wheel on our night trip back home because you always had me laughing so hard that sometimes I had tears coming out. I remember one time I literally had to pull off the road because I was laughing so hard I was swerving. I'll never forget those day trips. You brought alot of joy and laughter during my first two years in college. After that we lost touch...not for any specific reason, its just that people's lives sometimes go in different directions. And unfortunately I just found out of your passing after many years of wondering what you were up to at the time. You were a great friend Joe and I'll never forget you. Save me a seat next to you in heaven...I'd love to laugh with you again. Your friend, always.

Joe, I am still in denial that you are gone. We have known each other since 5th grade and we're making plans for you to visit Nashville one day. Unfortunately, that day never came. Know that I will carry you in my heart and our memories will always be close to my heart as well. It was an honor and a privilege that your took my parents 50th anniversary pictures and the pictures at their reception. You were a part of our family. Miss you always brother , rest in peace. Liza

Joe was the kind of lifelong friend most people never find. He was genuine and loving. I always knew he would be there if ever I needed him as I would have been for him. He will be missed in this world. It will not be the same without his light shining on us all.
