The last time I saw Marcus was when my brother, Raymond, was in hospice at Henderson Hospital in 1999. I lived Southeast of Dallas then. When I got to the hospital, Marcus was there in the room keeping my brother company. My brother was in and out. Marcus went everyday to see my brother and we talked about memories when we were teenagers. We always called Marcus and Mike our cousins. We were not sure, cause my dad's father we never knew. But he was a Jaramillo. So they became our cousins. Although I had not kept in touch. He has been in my mind and heart. I knew that he was not in good health so I prayed for him to get better. Love you Marcus like a brother. And Mike if you read this. I love you too. I just saw the pictures. The pictures of him younger---what can I say. Hugs and kisses. Ann Jaramillo
