Sad Day And A Happy Day All In One

Abelardo “Abbey” Lopez  Estacion, a long time friend from the Elks, passed on April 11th.    He was born in the Philippeans in 1933.  We went to his memorial service at the Santa Ana Elks from 1-4.  We were amongst 300 people paying their respects. The Branders, Zaitz, and Irene  joined us for the formal Elks ceremony and then the reception afterwords. He was a great friend!

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
