Thomas Chapa _ Houston Member

I wanted to take this time to give my condolences to Gerald Chapa aka FF member Chapa.

For those of you who haven't heard in the Houston chapter, Gerald lost his dear brother Thomas yesterday.

I have known both Gerald and his brother for only a couple of years, but as us Houston Focus members know, we come together and work together as if we have all known each other all of our lives.

Thomas and Gerald are like my brothers as are the rest of you. My extended family. And it was a shock and a moment of reflection to hear that this morning through my wife and her friend (who is also Thomas' teacher).

I wanted to share this moment to you all and if you guys can give support to Gerald Chapa and his family. We will come together again and support Gerald with this hard time that has come upon him and his family.


REST IN PEACE THOMAS. MAY YOUR POSITIVE ATTITUDE THAT YOU ALWAYS HAD LIVE UP IN ALL WHO HAVE MET YOU.

And Gerald, we are here for you.

-Ray-

Man that really sucks :(

But what happened though?

Edit: I gave Chappa a call not too long ago and his brother passed away from a drowning accident yesterday. Really sucks to hear this :(
