    I just want to let the Sauceda family know that my prayers are with them. I have grown up knowing this family and I am very happy to know each and everyone of you. I have watch this family go thru many of hard times and yet everyone of them still stood tall. I know that this is going to be a very hard time for this family and I would just like them to know that even though we have grown apart there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for being able to know you. Virginia you will be missed by many.

    With Love,
