GLENDALE — The mother of local fallen Marine Lance Cpl. Pedro Antonio Barboza Flores — who was killed July 11 in Afghanistan when a roadside bomb erupted near his armored vehicle — wept openly Friday at a Forest Lawn viewing ceremony, one hand on the open casket, the other on doting family members. As family, friends and total strangers streamed into the Church of the Recessional Friday evening to pay their respects to the 27-year-old Glendale resident, the scene was a solemn realization of what his mother, Aurora Flores, had earlier said she dreaded most.
