Noel, we love you so much,and relieved you are free from illness. I always think back to the vacation we all had together in Denver, Yellowstone, keystone, and Grand Tetons. Those were some great times. I loved watching you and my Dad laugh together. I miss my Dad a lot, but I am happy you are together with your Brother, your parents and your Abuelos. What a rejoicing reunion. Love you Tio Noel. Love always, Tina, Emilio and Darren Berkowitz 0=)
