Carol and I will never forget Manuel for his kindness and thoughtfulness. His attention to his wife and offsprings was outstanding. Manuel's jokes and stories, as far back as high school days, were always the best and appreciated, some we will never forget. Our travels and vacations with Mary Ann and Manuel (and children) were filled with fun and provided lasting memories. Love you all. Carol and Norman Weinstein (Picayune, MS)
