TO THE EDITOR:

The family of Lupe L. Hernandez would like to thank everyone for the love and support during his illness to lung cancer and for being there during the loss of our dad, grandpa, brother. Your compassion and love will never be forgotten.

Thank you to his grandsons, Andrew and Ishmael Ray, Gentiva Hospice from Roswell, nurses, doctors, chaplain, Juan, his friend, for always coming to see him every day, the Artesia Fire Department, and the veterans. Thank you, family, friends, and the community.

We will miss you forever, but you live in our hearts, Dad.
