Dear Terry and Family, please accept my deepest condolences at your Father's passing. He was a fine man and I was privileged that he sponsored me to a Men's Retreat at Our Lady of the Pines a number of years ago. That event had a deep impact on my life and I attribute that to your Father. I will not be able to attend the funeral but please know that He and you all will be in my prayers on Saturday. God Bless You and your Families. Art Cuellar
