I knew your mother Mary Lou she lived with her grandmother on Durango St. and so did us my sister Christina & brother Benge. My mom always liked to have parties on New Years Eve so this one year she talked to Dona Maria Mary Lou's grandma and asked if she would give her permission to come to the party to welcome the New Year 1962 that is where your mom & dad met and they must have had love at first sight because that night they eloped and the next day her grandmother came and had words with my mother because Mary Lou never came home. I never knew Sapo because he was from a different neighborhood but from I hear he used to hang around with some of the guys. So now you know the rest of the story. My Condolences to all the families. I in 1962 I got married and have lived in Montana since then.
