My most sincere condolences to all the family. I remember in the years of Carlis and Carmen’s courtship and marriage getting to know Ventura. Very family and life oriented and loved. Though the years and moving from Tucson, I lost touch with the family but always remained close in heart. May he Rest in Peace and May all the cherished memories help keep him alive in our hearts????✝️✝️
