Families lose sight of family, but family remain family nonetheless. Even though I really did not know Dion very well, I never lose sight of the bond that makes us family! I have a commitment that I cannot break today, but my prayers for Dion and his wife and children are being prayed, have been prayed and will continue to be prayed. Deepest condolences to Dolores and family, and to Tina Romero, my cousin and Dion's mother. Marty and Linda Espinosa
