My daughter Valentina chose Joel for her 2nd grade Dia De Los Muertos Project...

For those that don't speak Spanish, this is what she wrote:

"I want to remember Joel "Mooch" Lotilla.

He was a good friend of my Dad's.

Something that I remember about this person is that in his last months he was in a wheelchair.

One thing that I learned from this person during his life was to live a simple life and to always enjoy it.

He is also my friend."

Very proud of her...

Miss you Mooch!


Amazing and well said..
