Our father showed his love with strength and his presence. A man of few words who led his family with strength and his will. He was raised in Santa Ana, Michoacán and came to Texas as a teenager to make his way in life. His dream was to have a family, house, and car, which was accomplished. He came from a time when men were men and as a young boy he became a man. Filled with a fight to overcome anything that came against him he overcame all odds to have all that he dreamed. He fought a good fight. He persevered and endured to the end with that same grit. Toward the end of his life- he contemplated salvation - he heard the promise of eternal life and in 2019 he was baptized in the name of Jesus — his name is written in the tablet of life never to be erased. The hope we have is that one day he will be risen with Christ and we will see him again.
