To all of the Elizondo Family,
I am so sorry about your mom. Found out about it through my sister. Watching the video brought back memories of how when we were kids and going to school. Your mom was a terrific and wonderful person. I am going to miss her too. Maybe she will see my mom in heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with each and everyone of you. God bless you and comfort you during this time of sadness. Love you all.
