    Tony was what I called him. He was loved by so many including my parents Blas and Esther Moreno and all of us their children. We grew up knowing Tony and Mary ( as we called her) Rocha and all their children. We loved visiting them, traveling up north with them in the summers, going to the beach, and dances. They were inseparable Tony and Mary. As were they with my parents. They were compadres but mostly great friends. Tony was also called tio by some of us. He was funny, told jokes and made us laugh. He was smart and had a sense for business. I will never forget what a wonderful, kind, loving man he was to his wife, children, and friends. No one was a stranger to Tony. He will undoubtedly be missed by all who loved and knew him. My sincerest condolences to you Mary and children.

    If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we loved you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one else can ever fill. They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal, But neither time nor reason, will change the way we feel. we want to tell you something so there won't be any doubt, You're so wonderful to think of. But so hard to be without. It broke our hearts to lose you, But you didn't go alone. Passed loved ones came to guide you the day god took you home.
    On behave of the carrejos, davilas, Martinez and mendez familys we love you and god bless you all.
