I used to sit by Mauro at diaylsis always make sure he was keep warm because it would be cold in there always told the tech's that would work in our row that he looks cold put something on him if he didn't come with anything to cover him self I would always say hi to him and a see you later and he would always say hi to me and that I when I would get late he would say your late yep I will tell him yes and every time I got off the diaylsis he will tell you already leaving I would say yes it's already time. When I would not come he would say where was I an I was the same when he wouldn't be there I would always ask for Papa Retta that's what they would call the seniors at diaylsis an I would do the same also this lady that couldn't see that well would come with her husband would always wonder where was Don Retta? I would see people come and go well thats life what can we do.

One of my earliest memories of was when I was working as a dishwasher at age 13 at El Chico restaurant. I saw Luis carrying this huge tray of food with one hand. I thought to myself as skinny as he was, how can he do that. He's the only one who called me Pepe poncho(Joe Frank). I will miss his sense of humor and our Saturday night poker games. Rest in peace Mi Cunao.

Our families have known each other for decades. So sad when our elders (Dads) pass away. They were our foundation for uniting us all. Fun memories.
