To the Thomas Lopez, Jr family:
It has been my honor to be a part of the Lopez family for a half century.
His sister (my late wife, Frances, of 43 years) and I admired him as a great family man, business man and all around good guy. He has been a very good brother-in-law for such a long time. I will miss our time together.
