One of the many memories of Uncle Alex is at his granddaughter Jackie & Joseph’s Wedding. When Uncle Alex saw his older brother Pete (my father) and hugged each other both in a tuxedo... it was so touching. Love & miss you Uncle!
Rest In Peace.

I met Mr. Paras while shooting hoops with Darwin when they lived in Paradise Hills. Mr. Paras came out and with exuberance and confidence shot a Sky hook, Kareem Abdul Jabbar style., with the announced "JABBAR !" From then on we all called him Jabbar. Every time I saw him, I hugged him crying out "Jabbar" He was one of the cool dads. May you rest in the arms of the Lord Mr. Paras. I pray I get to see you again.
