    Mrs. Saldana was one of our mother’s best friends, growing up in Beaumont our memories as youngsters are good memories of visiting her and Mr. Saldana. Always welcoming us into their home. Our sincerest condolences to the Saldana family from the Rodriguez family. Our parents were Josephine and Jesse Rodriguez. God bless her for the all the love she shared with everyone and the lives she touched. The Rodriguez family, Jesse Jr, David, Imelda, Nelda, and Sylvia.

    Johnece, thank you for the care that you gave both of my parents over the years. They always said that if something was wrong that the first thing they were going to do was to call Johnece. It gave me great comfort knowing that they were in you and Dr. Ray’s hands.
    Sincere thanks,
