Post RIP Hector Guzman
My grandfather who is the Mexican link I always play the card of passed away somewhat suddenly on Sunday morning ... I say somewhat because he was certainly dying but I really thought I had a year or so left with him. My grandmother should pass any day now (she is 91 and he was only 86) ... my family moved them down here in February from Indy when my grandfather finally said he couldn't take care of her anymore. My grandma moved into a nursing home here and Hector went into an assisted living apartment. We had some good times as he went to dinner with us, went to family parties and seemed in good spirits but he was very lonely as he had spent most waking moments with my grandma for 67 years.

As some of you know my Uncle was in a horrific car crash in March of 2011 ... he hung on until March of this year before passing away from infections. When he passed away two things happened. 1) my grandfather pretty much stopped trying to stay alive ... he went from assisted living and only using his oxygen a few times a day all the way to hosprice and 24 hour oxygen and 2) my grandmother who you could still somewhat carry on a conversation with, stopped asking about Robin (even though we didn't tell her he passed away) and then went from sitting and talking to lying in bed and moaning ...

when we got a call Sunday morning that someone had passed away I was sure they were mistaken and it was my grandma not my grandpa ... we went to the nursing home to see him and he was so peaceful ... it was sad but good to say my goodbyes ... in honor of him and how he taught me my love of boxing I would post this for him ... instead of Arguello highlights as he was our favorite, I would post the 15th round of a fight I remember watching with him and going nuts over the action
