Mr. Valdez was such a nice man with a good heart. He was a great husband, father, grandfather, and friend. I was truly blessed to have known him. I thank him for bringing two wonderful children into this world. His daughter Theresa who is my best friend and his son Raul Jr. who is also a good friend. I know Mr. Valdez will always be with his family and his life will be lived through them.
