As a teenager, I remember how Mr. Vaca always made sure that I had a seat at the table to have something to eat. Years ago, he & his wife, along with my Godson Roland Jr. and his brother Ramon John came to see me at Crossroads in Cameron, MO... one of my most memorable visits. He will sincerely be missed. Love and Respect, Michael G Condolences to all the Vaca Family and all his many friends. Jeanine

I have fond childhood memories of visits to my Uncle’s family’s home. Very hospitable, gracious and a joy to be a guest. Many years ago Tio and Tia visited us up here in Maine and I hope I was as hospitable and gracious as they were to me. Most heartfelt condolences to the Vaca family.
