I remember meeting Helen and Big Luis in 1990. They were part of the cb club. From there, we became instant friends. Started going out to eat, going to yard sales. Teaching me how to make tortillas. We became more like family than friends. Going to miss you my friend. Till I see you again rest in peace.
