I just finished watching Narcos Mexico and all the memories came back to me when we were all in Houston. My father loved you like a son. M looks so much like you. You were great, big and strong, our country's protector. Just like my Dad. There was nothing that you both couldn't do. I miss those times. I miss you. I miss my Dad. I'm sure you both are having a ball up in heaven. I'll see you again friend. Until then.
