My deepest Sympathy to the family. I met Agapito when he first moved to Houston from Cameron, with his Mother, brothers and sister, Frances. That was in 1949, so to me he was family. We were neighbors and friends for all these years. He was a wonderful, loving, person, a great father and family man. I will miss him and my love to Andrea, his children and family. God Bless you.
