  1. I delivered meals to Mr Solis and truly enjoyed visiting with him. I’m from Hereford and my dad was a farmer so we talked a lot about that. He was proud of his 80 acres there and really enjoyed being on that farm. He was such a nice, accomplished, pleasant man and always had a smile! My deepest condolences to the family.

  2. Antonio was my father-in-law though I thought of him as dad. He was always there to encourage me and my wife. He worked hard when he went to the farm he loved the farm life. He was a very smart man. He new his math and figured ways to work smart. I only new him for 32 years but I enjoyed every day I was with him. Thank you dad
