sets as #mariachis
help say goodbye to Oscar San Miguel, Sr, in #DelRio
this evening. Oscar was an #immigrant
to this country from #Mexico
. A humble man and hard worker, he #served
his adopted country in the #US #armedforces
& then served his #community
in numerous capacities, including as a #ValVerdeCounty
commissioner. Oscar always wore a smile and never met a person he didn’t like.
Last evening, there was approximately a two-hour wait in line to give condolences to his family. Today, the church and graveside services were full to overflowing with people from all walks of life. Such was the respect Oscar commanded and the esteem and admiration of people whose lives he touched.
I met Oscar while in my 20’s as a young candidate for the legislature. Oscar block-walked and cooked barbecue for my fundraisers. I am privileged to count myself among his many friends. Del Rio will miss him greatly - & I will, too.
