By: Hughes H.R. No. 2948
         WHEREAS, No words can soften the pain of a young life cut
  short, and we join the family of Emilio Gonzales of Lockhart in
  mourning the death of this beloved little boy; and
         WHEREAS, Born on November 3, 2005, Emilio captured the
  attention and hearts of citizens across our state and nation as he
  battled the rare terminal illness that ultimately claimed his life;
         WHEREAS, During his all-too-brief time on this earth, Emilio
  was well-loved and nurtured by his devoted mother, Catarina
  Gonzales, who fought bravely for her son and asked only that he be
  allowed to live until the Lord was ready to take him home; that day
  came for Emilio on May 19, 2007, when he left the loving embrace of
  his mother to bask in the love of God; and
         WHEREAS, Though it is difficult to understand why this
  innocent child was born with such severe disabilities, may his
  family find comfort in God's immense love for Emilio and for them;  
  secure in the knowledge that he no longer suffers, may they also
  find solace in the prayers and kind wishes of the many individuals
  throughout the country who share in their sorrow; now, therefore,
  be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 80th Texas
  Legislature hereby pay tribute to the life of Emilio Gonzales and
  extend deepest sympathy to his mother, Catarina Gonzales, and to
  all those who mourn his passing; and, be it further
         RESOLVED, That an official copy of this resolution be
  prepared for his family and that when the Texas House of
  Representatives adjourns this day, it do so in memory of Emilio
