  9. I certainly did not know Mr. Jaquez but I want to offer his family and friends my condolences. Mr. Jaquez died while protecting many others, and his courage should be recognized by everyone in West Texas that still have homes and property that have not been ravaged by the recent wildfires.
    Although the words of myself or any others will do little to ease the pain of the Jaquez family, please do know that your loss has not gone unnoticed.

    Nothing can bring him back. No words can ease the pain today. Keep in mind there is tomorrow and that Elias died honorably. Were it not for up-coming surgery on my knee I would be with you. Know that you are not alone. Family is with you and in our prayers for you. Know that my mother and sister will be there to take care of you. Tell them what you need. I’ll write to you soon. Blessings
    Your cousin, Irene Blea
