My Grandfather, Lazaro Barrera, passed away this Wednesday, ending a long bout with Emphysema and a host of other age related ailments. His boundless wit and fiery demeanor will be forever etched in the memory of all of those who's lives he touched. He loved life; good food, dominos, fine shoes, tailored suits, and smart hats... but most of all he loved his family. Today we remember him, and i will always try to honor his memory.

reminds me of that Faces song,
"... poor ol' grandad. laughed at all his words.....i wish that i knew what I know now, when I was younger. ohh la la."

from what you've told, he was a pretty awesome dude. I never got met either of my grandfathers.

hopefully you'll get to bring home one of those 'smart' hats.

Hey Adi,
That was very well said! You know we all loved him like our own. But he's in a great place right now with his loving wife and my daddy. They're all together. May he rest in peace. God Bless you all.
