We did not personally know Mr. Romero, but often saw him out on his property in Des Montes over the the years. We've been fortunate to get to know his son, Don, and know how dedicated he was to his father's well-being. Mr. Romero certainly lived an honorable life, and we know he will indeed be missed. Our condolences to the entire family. Love and Peace from Ellen Marshall & John Onderdonk - San Antonio, Texas.
