First off, I just want to give my condolences to Arthur and Julia Villasenor our next door neighbor. It was their son, Big John Villasenor, who died in the boating accident at the Texas`Shootout yesterday. Big John was one of the Great Ones. He was always kind and generous to everyone, you couldn't find a better person. As a dear childhood friend, I have nothing but great memories of John and his true love,SPEED. Oh! how he loved to go fast. Cars,trucks,drag bikes,drag boats ,you name it,he raced it!! Always the great son, Helping his faher establish and pioneer one the first automotive oil change and lube shops in Houston. Later, John adding general and racing automotive. So. let me close by saying, good by John, and we'll always LOVE YOU. THE CANTU FAMILY.
GOD BLESS

Chris, this is Teresa Beene. I'm hoping you remember me. I heard about John and his fatal boat accident yesterday. My deepest prayers go out to his family. John has always been so caring of others. He earned his angel wings a million times over. God called his angel home.

Chris, my email address is tablue30@yahoo.com. I would love to hear from you and catch up :)
