My deepest condolences to the Salazar family. Mr. Salazar worked with my mother Delores Salazar at El Pueblo State bank where they traveled all over NM and some parts of CO collecting. He has a great sense of humor and was a good friend to my mother Delores and my father Paul Salazar. He is now at peace and joking with my mom who passed away on 8/6/14. May God Bless them both and bring peace and comfort to your family.
