In Sympathy: Ramon And Elisha Alonzo
On December 20 Dallas State Representative Roberto Alonzo lost his older brother and his grand-nephew in an accident on a south Texas fishing trip. The four-year-old Elisha fell in the water and his grandfather Ramon, 58, jumped in to try and save him. Both were drowned. Jesse Garcia of the Dallas Stonewall Democrats put it well: "We are very sad that one of our best allies and dearest friends who champions causes for our families is going through such heartbreak over his own. To send your condolences, you can email to District104.Alonzo AT house.state.tx.us."
