Artiles is an inspiration. No one lived his life more than he. I never saw him sad or mad, just always glad to have made it to America. He told me how great it was to be here several times.

Now we only had a few contacts after reconnecting on Classmates. His up beat attitude and positive energy was the same.. I miss him.. Miss his light...
