    Raul, I didn’t meet you when you were here. I’m Becky, Norma and Mickey’s daughter. Mom and I just finished reading the article. It was hard to do as I was crying much of the time. Thank you so much for honoring Papa in this way. Your kind words mean more than you know. Pops was blessed to have a friend as special as you. Thank you again. Fondly, Becky PS I’ll read the article to Pops when he wakes up!
