  1. I’m so sorry that we can not all make it to Uncle Johnny’s service. Our hearts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time.

  2. Sending my sincere condolences from El Paso Texas. My tio, although I only met him a couple of times, will be missed dearly. Upon my fathers passing, he reached out to me and my family and I will forever be greatful for him doing that. He provided me with great words and guidance during this though time. I wish I would’ve known him a lot better but with the few times I talked to him, it was enough for me to respect and admire his words.

    To the entire Hernández family, my tia Mary and all his children, god bless and my prayers are with you.

    To my uncle, Rest In Peace and spend time with your loved ones upstairs. Enjoy your eternal life sir! Much love and respect.
