WESLACO – The title “Gold Star” family is a modern reference that oftentimes comes with heartbreak and honor.

A father of a Rio Grande Valley soldier who died more than eight years ago says it’s a pain that never goes away, but wants to offer advice to Villalon’s family and other Gold Star families.
