    I always enjoyed taking Manny down to Little Rock for his VA appointments. He was always so positive and just a joy to be around. We quickly became friends. I will think of him often and all the things we talked about as I carry other veterans down there. I admire and respect him for his service to our country and the great man he was. I will miss him.

    It was a sad day for all of us when Dad had to put his golf clubs away for the last time because his eyesight got so bad. Thank you for giving him so many great days at the golf course. He truly loved the game of golf.

    I am soo sorry about the passing of Manuel. I remember him fondly when he and I always went to Jayden’s Grandparents Day at Jerry Pop Williams School. A great and friendly man that adored his family!

    Manny was a great golf partner, a great one to have an intelligent conversation with, and just a great person. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren, and I know they will miss him greatly as will all his old friends. We all will have special memories of this one of a kind gentleman. My sincere condolences to all the family.
