Irene and Johnny and family, I knew John many years ago when I would call almost daily for the guys I worked with at HOMCO, spoke with all three of you many times and was always treated with kindness. I learned to appreciate and respect John and his business at a very young age and was happy that lasted throughout my career there in Snyder. And when work took me elsewhere, it was good people like you that I missed the most. I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that your memories give you comfort and peace during this time. John Martinez, thank you for blessing my life and may you rest in peace.
