In Memory of Mary Guadalupe Puente
December 15, 1954 – December 18, 2022
On December 18, HVL lost a very important member of our family, Mary Puente. Mary served as HVL’s receptionist for 17 years. She always listened without judgment and spoke with compassion. Mary was a remarkable human being, whose presence will be deeply missed.

Mary was a loving devoted Aunt who enjoyed going to concerts, gambling at the casinos and going out to eat great food. But above all else, Mary LOVED going to watch her boys play baseball. David, Andre and Herc were her world!! Games will not be the same without Mary cheering in the stands.
