Pallbearers will be Ed (Lalo) Valencia, Henry Acosta, David Urban, Lorenzo Acosta, Nick Solano, and Earl Romero. In Loving Memory I am the cowboy, who rides a heavenly range, Soft and gentle, like the first fallen snow. I am the sunshine on a cold winter day, With rainbows of colors and gentle winds that blow. I lived, I played, I laughed, and I loved, Remember me always, I was your special one. When the day is done and the sun has gone down, Remember me as the cowboy, who's hard work is done. I ask you not weep for me, But to remember this day. I've gone to live in heaven I am the cowboy who rode away.
