    My sincere condolences go out to all the family, Mundo was one of a kind....... I knew him and worked with him for many years. He was one of the last of a dying breed ...LOS PAQUEROS.....!!!! He worked in the hay fields and hay barns along side all those men that knew how to earn an honest days living and support their families. He was a motivator and was always thinking out of the box on ways to earn a dollar. He will be missed by those who loved him and those who knew him....Rest in peace ...PRIMO.....!!!


    My deepest condolences to the Valenzuela family...May the Good Lord wrap His arms around each and everyone...may you feel His presences, love and peace.
