Although we shared but a brief time in Nixon around our Pompa family in Smiley Texas, I feel like we knew them all our lives. We knew them though our mother's heart because she always talked about her family with such genuine love and we felt it too. We have wonderful memories of Tio Candelario, very handsome, serious and extremely hard worker which seems to be a proud Pompa trait. Tia Amelia, Armando, Alice and Irma and extended family you are in our prayers, only you know how deep this loss is and we pray that God bless you and sustain you during this time of grief.
