Hector, me and Victor… Lifelong friends.
I’ve been very fortunate in this lifetime to be surrounded by an amazing group of friends. The seeds of many of my friendships began as early as elementary school, a few more in high school and definitely in college. Now in my mid-life, I am still surrounded by the very same loving and caring friends. These sets of pictures show my friends from way “back in the days”.
If you look closely, you’ll see some of the same faces pop up in these various photos albeit a little rounder, a few less hair and a touch of grey here and there.

Finally, one of the last pictures of the majority of the gang from Washington Heights together with a new generation. We’re now all spread out but still in touch most of the time. Sadly, we lost Andy (center, beige shirt) years ago.
