Mr. Ruiz worked in the mills back when my dad did and his son and I have been friends for fifty years. Now is the time when people our age are feeling the lose of our parents, uncles and aunts, seems that as we get more established in our lives those who taught us so much are passing on. I am sure Mr. Ruiz is in a better place with his wife and at peace. My best to my friend Rudy, his sister and the rest of the Ruiz family in this time of loss. God Bless.
