    My deepest condolences to the Ochoa family. I met you all many moons ago and you kept us in your prayers when we needed it the most. Thank you so much for that love. David hired my husband Eloy, 32 yrs ago this August with HEB. He has always considered David a mentor & a wonderful friend. Sending so many blessings and much love. Our prayers are with you.
