Condolence & Memory Journal

Mary, Michael, and Tommy, I did not hear of Nono's passing unit yesterday. Teri and I would like to express our sympathy and sorrow at the news. Nono was an important influence and mentor to me, helping me with his insight in establishing successful housing programs. His national presence was felt at housing authorities across the country. Rest well, my friend

Dear Family:

We have lost a very special person. Nono and I have worked together on various CPA projects for more than 40 years ... primarily with the Texas Society of CPAs and San Antonio Chapter PAC and Governmental Affairs Committees. He was always ready to share his knowledge and expertise and was always a fine gentleman. Recently Nono was kind enough to write a letter of reccomendation for my grandson (George Eifler) to submit with his application to attend A & M. May the Lord be with Nono and the family.

Nono was an Aggie buddy and a friend from his work at the Housing Authority and my work at the City of SA. We were also together in a variety of aggie groups like the SA Aggie club and SA Class of '62 group. He loved TAMU and was a great supporter of its programs and ideals, namely RELLIS. And he was an outstanding leader at the housing authority and in many other professional groups. He will be greatly missed by me and his many Aggie buddies!! Godspeed and best wishes to his family at this time of their loss.

My sincere condolences to the Flores Family. Nono was an extraordinary friend, a true Giant within the Housing Industry. He was a family man, with a story about his wife, Michael &/or Tommy always coming up somehow during our conversations. He was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known. I respectfully referred to him within our circle of friends as "The Oracle of San Antonio". He was always there for us, always picking up the phone: weekends, holidays, day or night. We will forever remember you with gratitude and respect my friend.

My condolences to the Flores family. I pray to God you find peace in your heart and knowing he now is our guardian angel. He was already our guardian angel on earth as he protected his employees and the residents that touched his heart like the elderlies. The 4yrs I got to work and know him was a pleasure, and loved that he would listen and cared for us. God bless you all and peace be with you.

Our world will be a lesser place for his leaving it. His presence in a room always lit it up (or, now and then, set it afire.

Michael, Tommy...we have lost a good man who made our world a better place.
