Nacha, I wanted to send my condolences to you and your family/children. Raul was greatly admired. I admired the fight and courage he had in him to overcome everything to become successful in business and hold down a STRONG foundation of family with you at his side (supporting and helping him build it). I most admired the talks we use to have. I always wanted to pick his brain to gain the knowledge to do what he has. Sorry again, I do wish I could’ve sen and talked with him to tell him these things. But, I think by saying them to you.... he knows as well. He had a wonderful life and will be greatly missed. Take care Nacha, hugging you from a distance “Fellow Gemini”
