Hello family and friends, welcome to the Ochoa family site. We have created this blog to keep everyone updated on Stessy's recovery, as well as to provide important upcoming dates and developments. We appreciate your support and words of encouragement during this very difficult time. Thank you for caring. God Bless.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. I didn’t know his name until I read the Bee this morning, but I would always bring my kids to the Farmers Market to buy flowers from him. He gave my little girl a flower every week. What a great man and what a loss. I am so sorry for your loss.
I always bought flowers from your dad when he came to the farmers market on Sunrise Blvd. in Fair Oaks. He always had a kind word for me and was always so friendly. And he always had amazingly beautiful flowers and bouquets! He obviously enjoyed what he was doing and it showed in all his dealings with the folks who he dealt with. I am so sorry for your loss and the injury to Stessy. You are all in our prayers and we will say extra for her for a speedy recovery. In the meantime, we hold you in our hearts. Please let us know what else we in the community can do to help your family through this difficult time, through this site you have set up.
I loved buying beautiful flowers from your dad and looked forward to it every week at Sunrise Farmer’s Market. His smile was contageous and beautiful, and he was always smiling. He was so knowledgeable about flowers and I loved listening and talking to him. He called me sweetheart, too, which just made my day. I am so very sorry for your loss. I looked forward to getting up on Saturday mornings because I was going to see Ed. I hope your daughter continues to do well in her recovery, and just know that Ed’s gift was the joy he brought to others. I miss miss him terribly.
It broke my heart when I saw his obituary in the Sac Bee. I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ve been going to the Sunday Farmer’s Market at 5th and W St. for years and he was always there, obviously loving what he was doing. He was always very friendly and smiling….A wonderful man… I cry just thinking I’ll never see him there again. I pray Stessy continues in her recovery………
Every Sunday I’d buy flowers from Eleazar for my office. He always had a special smile for every person. The pride in his work and the joy he brought to us all was apparent in every interaction. Not seeing him the past few weeks has hammered home just how wonderful his personality was, he radiated. My sympathy to Ed’s family and loved ones. Your husband and father was truly special.
As I look at all the picture that are posted , I see a man who truly loved life and loved his family. He reminds me of my father who came to this country from Mexico back in the forty’s and worked hard to provide a good life for his future children. My father also had 5 children whom he loved dearly till his death. I can still feel his love and feel him watching over all of us. I am sure that Eleazar is always going to be watching over his beautiful family also. I feel so sorry for your loss and I can not even imagine what pain you are going thru as a family. But try to remember that he hears you always.
My sincere sympathy.
