During our youth we were in CYO and Jr. LULAC at the same time. We were lucky enough to create memories and friendships that have lasted a lifetime. You were always a positive and caring friend and a great person. Life creates different roads for us to follow and we lost contact. But memories remain. Condolences to your family. May you Rest In Peace, dear friend.
