PARKER -- Alfred. The faculty, staff, and students of the Economics Department at the University of New Mexico wish to extend sincerest condolences to wife Judy, and the extended family, of Alfred Parker. A professor emeritus of the University, Al Parker had a lengthy and distinguished career in the department, serving as Chair for nine years. He was a complete scholar, researching, publishing, teaching, and mentoring students, as well as providing service to the university and the wider community. He continued to contribute to the department after his retirement, and his passing is a great loss, but his legacy will live forever through the generous gift of a scholarship in his name. We have lost a colleague, a leader, a mentor, and a friend--a true scholar and a gentleman.

SANCHEZ -- Michael Paul Sanchez May 30, 1985-December 17, 2003 In Loving Memory Michael, a son, a grandson, a brother, a nephew, a cousin, and a friend. You are very special to your family and friends. It has been a year since our Heavenly Father called you home. Although you are now with our Saviour our hearts here on earth still hurt, a hurt that may not heal until we meet again in heaven. We are left here with only pictures and our memories. God please do not let them fade. Your big beautiful smile, your happy eyes and the sound of your cheeful laughter will no longer be a part of our daily lives. We remember when your Mom use to call you Clifford (the big red dog) when you were growing up because you were growing so big, so fast right before her eyes. The morning your life was so violently taken the lives of your family changed forever more. There is emptiness in our hearts that cannot be filled. Eighteen years was much too short, although we are so blessed God sent you to be with us awhile. We do not need a special day to bring you to our minds. Each morning when we awake and know that you are gone, despite our heartaches we try and carry on. Our hearts cry out to God, "How could you let this happen?" We are reminded that Michael was given to us from Heaven and was not ours to keep, but a loan from God. And now he has returned to his Heavenly Father. Someday God's purpose will be revealed and our questions will be answered. We know you are finally free to follow the path God has laid for you. As you look down from Heaven seeing our silent tears knowing how much we miss you and knowing the pain in our hearts. God promises in Heaven we will not be apart. All we have is our dreams, in our dreams you are alive and well. Our family chain is broken and nothing will ever be the same; but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. Michael, your family loves you and we miss you so very much. You will never be forgotten.
