I'm sorry to learn of the passing of Mr. Valenzuela. I was good friends with Dianne, Benito and the girls during their stay in Bryan. It's Dec. 10th and I know it's the anniversary of her passing. I think about her all of the time. I still miss her very much. I was greatful to meet both Mr. Valenzuela and her mother a few times during their visit to Bryan. I have much respect for both of them. To both the Carrasco and Valenzuela families, Thank You for allowing me to be a part of your lives. Adrian G.

Sorry for your loss my prayers are with you and your family.
Death is the heartache no one can heal,
Memories are keepsakes no one can steal.
Beautiful memories are all we have left,
Of the ones we loved and will never forget.
Softly the leaves of memory fall,
Gently we gather and cherish them all.
Planted deep in memory's garden
And watered daily with tears,
Memory has a magical way
Of keeping loved ones near.
