r.i.p buelo even doe i just started to come around you i still love you like the rest of the fams thanks for allowing me to share ya family.

Well bigdaddy,…

It’s been awhile and I’ve set back and watched all the hoopla and goings-ons from the “family”, as we discussed on several occasions! But, I felt it was time to bless this page with my love and thoughts, sir.

Remember you told me how you would do anything to not leave and you would be honored to start a farm with your son-n-law? Well, it really is a reality now,… :o) I grow plantains, guineo, melons, fruits and veggies. You would love it sir.

I pratice meditaion in between raising one of your, now (7) great-grand children, named Jason. He’s a hand full, yet he teaches me a lot! :o) Ironically, we reside in your original county of Coamo, Puerto Rico and we love it; Caty, my mom, Jason and I. The people and atmosphere is exactly as you descibed it would have been, in your day sir.

I miss your strong handshake, your private thoughts and your private tears to just want peace of mind, on a daily basis. Well, we’ve found that peace in these beautiful mountains as well and I know that your soul is resting now,… until you’re reborn once again into this Karmatic level of life.

Be still, be tranquil and be you, the greatest father-n-law I could have ever asked for, by far. I’ll see soon during my meditation sessions, hoping to reconnect with you,… be looking for me please.

Your son-n-law/friend,

Eric S. Taylor
