Miguel, you and I sold the Laredo Morning Times when it cost 10 cents. That's a long time ago. Although we separated when I moved to San Antonio Texas, we retained our friendship for ever. I and my wife Ambrosia were present as padrinos de lazo at your wedding to Hilda. We will always continue praying for you and your family to God our Lord. May you rest in peace Compadre and our sincere condolences to your beautiful family. God Bless You.

My condolences to the Gonzalez family. I met Miguel at Lulac12 in the 70’s. He was always in a good mood, always making those around him laugh. His brother, Homero, would almost always take us “botanas.” I’ll see you again Truman. RIP LULAC BROTHER!
