Amado & Miriam Chico

April 4, 2018

Santos, our beloved brother-in-law, will be missed by us all, one special man, but to Maraco & Amado, the loss goes beyond, they go way back. When they were together dominoes was their game, sometimes loud laughter or petty arguments over who was cheating. Of course I was usually the fourth player. Our last game at the nursing home was one of the best, Santos and I beat Amado & Santos roommate, “a chiva”. We will miss him, especially Amado, always remembers when he was 10 years old and had to chaperone Maria, Santos gave him 50 cents to go hang out and leave them alone, he’s still trying to figure out how he spent all that money. He is now reunited with the rest of our family and RIP with the Lord.
