I was fortunate to have met him.
He was a smart, hardworking man who built a successful business and helped raise a family with drive and ambition. He was funny and would always make me laugh once Armando translated to me what he had just said. Yet, he also always made the effort to speak English with me for a bit; it was the sweetest gesture to make me feel welcome on our visits to Mexico City. My husband admired him and I know that he will strive to be just like his grandfather.
