Segundo Alvarez

1916-2007

My Grandfather passed away last night at the age 90. We will miss him. We actually went to a surprise birthday party last June for him and his twin brother (yeah a surprise birthday party for two men that turned 90). He is a twin, but as the story was told as I understood it, they weren’t expecting two, they were only expecting his brother. So when his mother gave birth to the second child they named him Segundo (literally second) they were not expecting him at all.

When I was younger and I went to private school (from Kindergarten till 5th grade) he picked me up from school and took me to my house where my Grandmother was and she watched me till my parents came home from work. Now he’s with her and I miss them both very much.

Thank you, Abuelo, for all the great years, I will miss you…
