My deepest condolences to the Gutierrez family. My father, Ramon Abeyta and Florenio were double first cousins. I knew my Tia Quica and Tio Saturnino as a little girl. May God bless Florenio who was very faithful and devoted to God!

It was an honor and privilege to have cared for such a gentle and kind man. He was a delight to be around. I will always remenber his smiles and his kind words and the way he'd say "ala modies". I have so much love for him and will miss him dearly.
