I met Raul and Anne in December, 1971 on our first trip to Austin. From the very first they both opened their arms to me and embraced me as a member of the amazing Guzman family, as did the rest of the family. Later trips to Austin from our home in Michign always included a visit to their house. There are not enough positive and loving adjectives to describe both of them. Your brother, Alfredo, and I will always miss you.
