Roberto M. Duran (Bobby)

My sincerest condolences to the Duran family. May you keep your father's memory alive in different ways. For me, it will be to listen to the music he loved so much, how he loved to listen to his favorite songs of days gone by. The Mariachi music played at his gravesite was a fitting tribute to him. May Bobby rest in peace... till we meet again.
