I became great friends with Luis as a manager for a local ranch in his county. He would patrol near the ranch at times and my wife would make an extra plate to take to him. His daughter babysat my daughter on occasion. And we always took extra time to talk Mrs. Blancarte at her work. Spent many a days with this man and his family and we cherish them to this day. We spent so much time with the Blancarte's and miss them so much. Nuestros corazones están contigo. Te Amos Blancartes
