Raul,

I'll never forget the day that you & I met. I was walking home from Lincoln and there you were in your Cable Truck.... Never did I think that you & I would become great friends. You were always there when I needed you. I'll remember the countless hours we spent talking on the phone through your time in the Academy and the years to come in MCJ. Along with all our dates, I'll Remember you & your Wonderful Smile. I'm Truly Sadden to find out that You Have Left This World Behind. I Loved You Then & I Love You Still.... Rest In Paradise
