To my dear Primo Raul, even though I live so far away, I will always love and miss you. You were always so kind to me all my life and during my formative years while growing up. Thanks for the many times which I was given to accompany you and your father, Tio Alejandro to the ranch. You were a good brother to my brother, Kenny. Can’t wait to see you in heaven! Love Jimmy
