Probably Never Heard of Outside of His Town

The Houston Chronicle had this fascinating story of a tombstone that wound up in South Padre Island. Hurricane Ike more than likely washed this ashore all the way from San Juan, TX. It is the tombstone of 16 year old Luis Martinez who was killed in a car crash. Like me he lived in a small town. I bet hardly anyone outside of San Juan knew him. With his tombstone washing up in South Padre Island he will become better known. Well Luis, rest in peace. It's sad such a young life was cut short.
