Where to begin....Two of my Favorite and dear memories are one when we visited Manny and Maria many years ago and we went to Ruidoso and Carlsbad Caverns. He loved the caverns and taught me the difference between Stalagtites and Stalagmites. He said Stalag”tits” went down. Ha ha. I never forgot it. We absolutely loved your humor. You kept our long ride in the car lively and fun. From the car while looking out the window, I yelled out I saw “beavers” while pointing to a river area very very far away.
Manny laughed out loud and said, “WHAT? no way you saw beavers. There aren’t any beavers around here!” He had a very good laugh at my expense and He never let me live it down. Looking back, I really thought I would’ve had to have eagle eyesight to see that far. We still talk about it till this day and even my kids kid me about it.
Another favorite memory, Manny and Maria came for a visit to Miami to help celebrate a milestone bday. We got a little too happy with the Quitapena tequila and I ended up in the shower with my clothes on. We were competitive and he was only a little taller than me. He always called me his little drinking buddy from that moment on. I never drank tequila again. Oh Manny, we will miss you and you will live in our hearts forever.
Love Gladys and Al Peraza
