Letter to the editor: Family appreciates support in time of loss


The family of Justin Ryan Moore, who died on Sept. 17, 2018, would like to express sincere gratitude for all the love, tears and all the hugs we received during our loss. Thank you for the sympathy cards, flowers, and the monetary donations, it has been overwhelming. 

A special thanks to Weylen Vigil, Chapel of Memories, who took care of the arrangements. Lori Lynn Martinez, who handled everything that comes with preparing a funeral, getting Ski Hi Complex, helping write and putting the obituary in the local papers, the collages, the Nazarene gym for the dinner and for giving “JUJU” a final ride to the top of Wolf Creek Pass.

There are so many, many friends and if someone isn’t mentioned, please know you are not forgotten.

Special thanks go to uncle Ronnie Martinez, who is always there for us, aunt Betty Gutierez for arranging the dinner and all the help from Edna Sanchez, Lillian Gonzales, Crystal Baker and Joyce Miranda.

Thanks go to Patsy Olivas and family for setting up the tables and helping serve family who came from afar, as well as Cheech for making arrangements for the Benefit at Freydo’s, who donated the use of his bar.

Angela Miranda did the slide show, while Angela DeSuatell, Cheyenne Seimmering and Amanda McDonald made the collages, Jake Medina offered the use of his PA system and Jesse Holland for setting it up and providing the music. Thank you to all.

A special thanks to “Chadders” Chad Moore, Brook “Princess” Moore, Art Vigil, Pete Cordero and Ronnie Martinez for an amazing service, and the VFW Auxiliary for their tribute to Justin, who was a member of Aux. 8121.

Thank you, Cory “Bean” Vigil for being Justin’s partner at Valley Pump and Drilling and last but not least, all of Ju’s friends and biker friends who always supported him and took him on “Justin’s Final Ride” to the top of Wolf Creek Pass.

Chad and Brook Moore, brother Jason Martinez and “MAMA” Peggy Martinez
