Pops. It's been a minute. I have my second daughter Kali Marie Irizarry. She's a trip, only 3 and knows everything. I'm so proud of Makayla and Kali, both are different and so alike. I wish you were here, so you can experience them. I'm still railroading, 7 years in and not leaving until I retire. We are currently building a home, I'm engaged with kali's mom, shes a good woman and loves us to death, she keeps me on my path and take care of our home. She want us to invest in reinstate, so when I retire, won't have to solely depend on my retirement. But with all that said, I love you and will talk to you soon. R. Michael Irizarry
