    My Mom, Felipa, always talked how she cared for her younger brother, Fidel since birth. Mom was 10 at the time he was born. She would reminisce how she would feed/bath/care for him. You could see the sparkle in her eyes whenever she spoke about her brother, Fidel . Now both Mom and Uncle Fidel are looking down upon us and smiling as they are both are at peace.

    I am glad that I had the opportunity to visit with my Uncle earlier this month. My prayers are with the Flores family.
