I had the pleasure of working with Alvaro Garza during my time at KGNS. Years later when I was experimenting with a magazine format, I called him up to see if he'd be interested in contributing a piece called "Greatest Hits" where he'd describe the 3 greatest moments of his life. After hearing he had passed away, I immediately dug up this piece and reread his words. It truly is a testament to the kind of person he was, and it's easy to see why he touched so many lives.
I've posted the original article so those of you who were close to him could read, in his own words, his "greatest hits" and celebrate the life of this young man that is gone too soon.
