    express how sorry we are for your loss. The loss of a great man., A true Texan

    who devoted his entire life to his family and his country.

    Luis was a kind man who took my sister Dianna under his wings as his own and

    Dianna looked at him as her dad. You will be missed greatly.

    Luis had an open door for my family and made my kids feel a part of your

    family, thank you Garza family for this. Luis helped to show my kids respect.

    He had a gentle smile and a great big heart that he showed to Genie and Gracie

    and I know that they are hurting right now but that pain will ease and they

    will have all those beautiful memories of their grandfather.

    Steven, your dad was so proud of you and your siblings. He installed into you

    the meaning of an honest days work and to take pride in your accomplishment,

    that of your family.
