I offer my heartfelt condolences to your family on the passing of Mr. Bustamante. It was my such a delightful moment to sit and talk with Mr. Bustamante about serving in the Army during WWII and me in the Gulf War; both having the same jobs in the military. I will miss giving him biscochitos and shall have a few cookies in his honor.
