Family and Friends:
What is left to say about our brother-in-law that has not been observed by others. He and his wife, my sister, were walking examples on a DAILY BASIS of love and devotion, to each other as well as others.
When my children and husband and I speak of Felix, our memories will always include his love in teaching our children the ways of the "good life" on a ranch and the "hard-knocks" of life on the ranch and it was always done in love and with laughter.
Knowing Felix is with our Lord and resting in peace is comfort but we grieve our the loss. Fortunately, we have our memories; Felix has physically left all of us but he will live in our hearts forever.
Our sincere love to my precious sister,Tachita, our nieces, Ofelia and Maria and nephew, Felix, Jr.
