Dear Chuy, thanks for being such a good friend of my Uncle Sergio Armijo and his and your friends. You all taught me the true meaning of what the word FRIENDSHIP. I can honestly say that because of you all I now have a few close friends I can relate as you all have had. My sincere condolences and prayer go out to all your family members and friends on behalf of my Mother (Mary E. Guerra Cornejo) Estelita and my self. Will always remember you with lots of love.
