  3. Our heartfelt condolences to my friend/sis Norma, Normita , Ray , Robert and granddaughters. I have no words to express my sorrow but only my love and the tears I will shed. I will remember Mundo as I knew him as being a gentle giant with lots of sense humor. Always joking and eating sunflower seeds. Seeing him in his uniform as he would visit the office and marine offices. Thank you for your service. May you rest in peace and may the perpetual light shine upon you my friend. May the memories he leaves behind give you all peace and comfort in this difficult time.
    Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.
    Matthew 5:4
