RIP Meme, as you join your brother and my godfather Fuigy up in heaven. My sincere condolences to the Saenz family. Mi más sincero pésame Carmen que dios esté con ustedes.

I was so sorry to hear of Meme’s passing. My family (Arredondo) used to live in the same neighborhood in Laredo in the 50s and 60s. We were close to the younger members of the family, but remember Meme very well. Our family often thought of the Saenz family after we moved away. We shared many fun times with all of them during our childhood. We used to live across the street from Homero Alvarado on Convent Avenue. My condolences to the family. May you cherish the memories.

I wish I could say something that could ease the pain, words seem meaningless but those we have lost don’t leave us, they are always there. First in their lifetime, then forever in our memory. I’m sorry for your loss, sending all the family our most sincere condolences.
