I was able to talk to my dear childhood friend Carlos who l remember my tio Maco wound call him by the name "Carlangas" a couple of years back. We would see eachother every summer in Nebraska as we were migrant workers back in the day. Our families would hang out on weekends and have bar-b-ques, go to garage sales, and loved going out to eat shrimp at a restaurant named Chuck Wagon. Truly miss those days and l will always carry those beautiful memories with me. RIP my dear friend.
