    He was a part of my family’s business as a loyal customer his entire life. He knew the store better than the employees. He was like family. My sincere condolences. He will be deeply missed by those that knew him.

    What a handsome man, Mr. Madaffri was. I am very sorry to read of your loss. He was a very faithful and dedicated man, married 50 years! I won't pretend to know what you're going through, but what has helped me deal with the loss of those I love, is turning to the Scriptures, something that has been a real source of comfort. One Scripture that gives me hope is, John 6:40, which says: "For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who recognizes the Son and exercises faith in him should have everlasting life, and I will resurrect him on the last day.” I hope that this verse will also comfort you, and I hope you and your family can get through this difficult time. Please accept my condolences for the loss of your beloved husband, father, grandpa and friend. Sincerely, Meryl, -

    Maria, Jesse, Darlene, Patty, Grandchildren and Family. Prayers for peace and comfort and in loss of Jesse. I remember Jesse when I was a very young girl going to St. Joseph Catholic Church with my parents. Jesse was an active member who was a usher and also remember him when we had spaghetti dinners he was always helping to cook and serve. Jesse touch the lives of many and was very kind and when you were at him home, he made you feel like family. Loved going to the house to see Jesse and Maria and hearing the many stories that were shared. Jesse you will truly be missed by all. Rest in Peach until we all see each other again.
    Kathryn and Chris Hinojosa, Sr.
