  1. Dear Virginia & Family Our prayers are with you at this time. May our Lord grant you peace and remind you of the many wonderful memories you all shared with such a loving husband and father. Love & God Bless, Max & Tillie Sais

  2. My condolences to the Jurado Family. ‘Stubby’ was one of the best storytellers I ever knew. He had the gift of making you laugh at everything – including yourself. I remember once he said he wanted his arm propped up so he could wave ‘goodbye’ from his casket when he died (that was a long time ago). He was truly special and I’ll never forget him.
