PRICE - Moises Herrera, age 92, passed away Aug. 21, 2008 at his home.

He was born May 20, 1916 in Questa, N.M., to Elfido and Jesusita Rael Herrera. Married Albina Trueba on Nov. 16, 1943 in Price.

Moises loved his family and made everyone feel loved and special.

His best times were telling stories to the grandchildren about his childhood.

He loved to hunt and fish and, at 80 years young, he got his last elk.

He worked in the coal mines for many years and was a very devoted member of the United Mine Workers of America.

Dad loved to watch "his" Utah Jazz.

He planted a garden every year and always shared his bounty.

Whenever we went to visit him, his parting words were: "Tell everyone I know hello and anyone else who I don't know hello, too."

Everyone loved and respected him.

Dad, you finally wore your last clean shirt.

We love you and will miss you forever.
